Der Hauptmann von Köpenick (1956)
One of the most difficult roles
If stage is included, this play has been the first real caper movie with a smart and sympathetic robber and and a weak but unbeatable seeming system, which is able to give him no options in his normal life, than to beat the system with it's own weapons. The real case of Wilhelm Voigt is as legend in and around Berlin. Zuckmayer's play is one of the best of it's time. I've seen it on stage several times in several towns and countries, but Rühmann is not to defeat. No one else did the job that good, than he did, seeming to be a tall guy, when he was just a small one, being impressing, when he didn't even knew how to handle his own life, giving the money back to prove the faults of the system or just to get a passport. If you like caper movies, just check out, what brains of them might have seen before...
