Lizzi Waldmüller (May 25, 1904, Knittelfeld, Styria – April 8, 1945, Vienna) was an Austrian actress and singer whose breakthrough to stardom came through her role as Rachel in the Willi Forst movie Bel Ami in 1939.
Lizzi had her theatre debut in Innsbruck in the 1920s, before finding success in Graz, Vienna and eventually abroad - in Germany. She became renowned through the Paul Lincke song 'Ich bin die Frau, von der man spricht' (I am the woman they're talking about). At the beginning of the 1930s, she played supporting roles next to stars such as Heinz Rühmann, Hans Albers and her husband Max Hansen, whom she divorced in 1938.
She died April 8, 1945, in an air raid in Vienna, Austria, a month before the end of World War II. Her memorial can be found in Friedhof Hadersdorf-Weidlingau, Hadersdorf-Weidlingau, Penzing, Vienna.
