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

Comment on DMAC-4's comment.
27 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

Well, very interesting you found it hilarious. I'm sure all those German, Dutch and Belgian kids at that time just -loved- it. In fact, I know they did, because when I saw them on tv when I was a kid I couldn't wait for the next one. The movie is naive, but it is also timeless. I have kids of my own now and they just love these movies. (Yes, they did a whole series of them!)
