Storyline

On his adventurous travels trough the Ottoman empire, Kara ben-Nemsi (the Turkish-Arabic name means 'black(bearded) German', so author Karl May, whose alter-ego he is, would consider shaved blond Lex Barker miscast) and his bragging but helpless 'protector' hajji Halef pass the land of the Skipetars (modern Albanians, one of the few Balkanic people who adopted the Turkish Muslim faith) where a whole region is terrorized by the many accomplices of the secretive 'Schut', one of whose rackets is kidnapping for ransom locals and especially wealthy travelers such as Kara's friend Omar's fiancée. After unmasking the mübarek, a local phony 'magician', and dealing with some other ruffians and corruption, he and Lord Lindsay -who for once succeeds in escaping with his butler Archie by his own ruse- find out the Shut is actually the wealthy Persian carpet merchant Nirwan and set out to finish him off.

Solid action and a good sense of humor
17 April 2006 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

The Schut (Rik Battaglia) seems to be a king of the bandits; he controls the land in the disguise of the rich Merchant Nirwan. The corrupt police force does not take any action against him. The Schut holds an English aristocrat and a French merchant for a ransom, then he also abducts the beautiful Tschita (Marie Versini). Kara Ben Nemsi (Lex Barker) tries to find the Schut's hiding-place in the mountains and free the prisoners. But the Schut has many rogues and assassins under his command who make this search long and dangerous.

Hollywood director Robert Siodmak, famous for the Burt Lancaster classics "The Crimson Pirate" and "The Killers", directed this picture on location in Yugoslavia. Despite his experience, some fights are not convincing (e.g. Kara holding the weight of both Aladschy brothers on a rope!) and the low budget is occasionally revealed, but nevertheless "Der Schut" is the best movie from the oriental branch of the May series in the 1960s. Solid action and a good sense of humor carried by Dieter Borsche (as Lord Lindsay) and Chris Howland (butler Archie) as well as Ralf Wolter (in the role of Kara's sidekick Halef) fit well together, recommendable!
