All videos and pictures in the movie were recreated featuring Christoph Waltz, not the real Roy Black. The performance at the end of the movie (at the RTL Lion Award 1987) was the only footage featuring the real Roy Black. However, on the screen behind him was the video of Christoph Waltz. 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.
