Schell received an honorary doctorate from the University of Chicago in 1992.
He received incredible accolades internationally as a filmmaker. "First Love", "The End of the Game", "Tales from the Vienna Woods" and "Marlene" all received their fair share of awards from various film festivals, but the hands-down winner was "The Pedestrian" which, in addition to its Golden Globe as Best Foreign Film, garnered 46 other awards worldwide.
Schell has been diagnosed with diabetes.
In August 2000, the actor was flown to Germany from Riga after becoming ill with an inflamation of the pancreas, a situation that doctors described as serious but not life-threatening.
