Legends
Heinz Rühmann

Heinz Rühmann, "the little man in the big time", played himself into the hearts of German viewers with his mischievous smile. But in private life, the audience's good friend was a man full of contradictions.

With unusually candid interviews of family members, friends and colleagues, the documentary provides intimate insights into the private life of the exceptional actor for the first time. Unpublished private pictures and film footage show Rühmann from previously unknown sides: The serious and introverted Rühmann did not appreciate it at all in private when people laughed at him.
