Some songs in this movie were sang by Roy Orbison. He was Roy Black's idol, therefore he used his first name in his pseudonym. The 'Black' is cause of his black hair and his nickname in school 'Blacky'. See more »
In the movie Hans Bertram left Roy Black with direct words. In real life Bertram didn't say a word about it and Roy left him and Bertrams wife and partner, after writing a Thank-you-letter to him. After that he replied to Roy Black with insults. See more »

How dare you?
Sorry, I am not feeling well.

Do you want to destroy everything I built up? Have you forgotten that 98% of your fans are women?
Well, in my private life I can do whatever I want.
Private life? You have no private life! You don't belong to one woman, you belong to all women. And if you don't get that you can go back to Augsburg playing playboy of the village.

In the title card at the beginning of the movie, the words 'Roy Black' were written in the style, as the real Roy Black wrote them on an autograph card. See more »
I was actually very much surprised to see as decent a film like that on the RTL channel back in '97 or '96 - but only until I found out who had directed the film. Keglevic has done a very good job with Rudolf Kowalski (in a top role as the latter-day agent of Roy Black) and Christoph Waltz who convincingly portrayed the insecure rock-star made Schlagersänger. The film focuses on the years between his discovery and his decline, ending just before he is to comeback as an actor.
