For years after her breakthrough performance at age 24 in the unhinged comedy "Zur Sache, Schätzchen" (""Go For It, Baby""), Uschi Glas was affectionately referred to as Schätzchen by the German press and public. The film, a post-World War II generational staple, is fondly remembered for its casual rebellion against the status quo and its suggestiveness in the wake of the '60s sexual revolution. Glas found herself at the center of attention following its release, but her potential was feared squandered after a tepid seven-picture slapstick series called "The Brats on the Front Bench Row" miscast the starlet as the elder sister of a rascally prankster. That she also starred as a perky victim in the trashy '72 Italian giallo horror flick "Seven Blood-Stained Orchids" did little to bolster her reputation. Glas's career made a fine recovery, however, and she became a ubiquitous TV presence during the '80s and '90s. Among her most famous starring roles was as a businesswoman in "Anna Maria--Eine Frau geht ihren Weg," a drama that aired on the German network SAT1, and pulled in as many as 10 million viewers at its peak. In 1994, Glas's memoir, "Mit einem Lacheln" ("With a Smile"), was published.
