The series "Legends: An Evening for ..." shows 90-minute portraits of German "legends" and presents rare archive material and interviews with companions and friends. Hans-Joachim Preil was the nine-times clever, know-it-all and senior teacher in the legendary comedian duo "Herricht & Preil". He wrote entertainment history for 30 years. His skits, comedies, and swans amused an entire country. During the rehearsals for the joint production "Yes, I'm such a man", actress Karin Ugowski had an accident and had to wear a plaster cast on his leg for weeks. Although the broadcaster urged to cast a new actress, H.P. Preil stood up for her and the broadcast date was postponed for Karin Ugowski. In the interview, the actress remembers the collaboration.
