Storyline

After dealing with the Shut in the Balkans, Kara Ben-Nemsi ('Karl the German') receives a firman (precious passport) from the padishah (Ottoman sultan) before he continues his travels through Kurdistan. Achmed El Corda, the son of Halef's Hadedhin Beduin tribe's sheik Mohammed Emin, has been captured by the machredsh (Turkish governor) of Mossul for resisting water seizure by his Turkish troops. Kara takes charge of the rescue. On their way, they help eccentric Lord David Lindsay and his butler Archie, who gallantly try to rescue an Oriental lady, as well as pir ('holy man') Kamek's sun-devoted Yessidi sect.

Dangerous adventures and interesting characters
16 February 2007 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

Kara Ben Nemsi (Lex Barker) and his friend the sheik hear that the sheik's son was taken prisoner by the evil Machredsch of Mossul. On their way to his rescue, they face many dangerous adventures and meet interesting characters such as the constantly drunk Mütesselin (Werner Peters, hilarious!), the unshakable butler Archie (Chris Howland) and the beautiful dancer Ingdscha (Marie Versini).

Mostly solid, colorful fun, but not without flaws. Originally it was planned to shoot this picture at its historical location in Turkey, but for organizational reasons it was decided to make it in Spain instead (source: M. Petzel). „Durchs wilde Kurdistan" was not huge, but successful enough to have a sequel following in the same year: „Im Reich des silbernen Löwen".
