The construction of the Great Western Railroad creates heavy conflict between the railway company and neighboring Indian tribes. Worse, criminal gang leader Santer sets his eyes on a gold mine located on holy Indian land and influences the construction supervisor to re-rout the planned railroad straight through Apache land. Old Shatterhand, who works as a measurement technician, discovers the evil plan and searches contact with the Apaches in an effort to avert war. Written by MCSmarties

What a memory!
23 December 2013 | by (Sarajevo B&H) – See all my reviews

It was so nice to remember times when this film was shot in the former Yugoslavia, what is today Croatia. I was not born then but they told me how wonderful it was to work with those people at those times.They filmed at what is today Plitvice Lakes and Dubrovnik, Popovo Polje area. Old people still remember that.

I wish making films was simple and nice as it was during those times.

It is great to take a ride in the past and revisit those old movies.

You the younger generation should do the same.

For details of film see the other reviews, everything there has been well said.
