USCHI! Obermaier is Eight Miles High
posted on 16th August, 2011
I watched Das Wilde Leben (Eight Miles High) the other night.. it’s a German biopic set in the 1960′s about the “wild life” of Ushci Obermaier..
…a model, actress, and likely the most famous German groupie of the 1960s.. dating the likes of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Jimi Hendrix.. Richards wrote about her in his recent autobiography..
The film doesn’t get great reviews but I loved it for what it was.. amazing 60′s jewels & fashion, i.e. big bangles, big hair, and kaftans…
a screenshot from the film..
here’s the trailer:
here’s some photos of the real Ushci Obermaier..

Uschi with her boyfriend at the time, Rainer Langhans.. when she lived in Kommune 1
These days.. Uschi designs jewelry and lives in LA’s Topanga Canyon..
BTW.. I think Charlotte Kemp Muhl has a huge resemblance to Uschi.. a sort of modern day Uschi..
not to mention a very similar style..
