From the salt lake to the mountain top
16 February 2007 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

This is the sequel to „Durchs wilde Kurdistan", although the 2 novels by Karl May were not directly connected. So if you think only the title „Im Reich des silbernen Löwen" was used for a newly created story, you're close to the truth. Nevertheless, an enjoyable adventure in 19th century Turkey and the country we today call Iraq. Kara Ben Nemsi (Lex Barker) tries to save Ingdscha (Marie Versini) who was abducted by bandits, needs to prove to his powerful protector, the Padischah, that he is not a traitor and chases his enemy the Machredsch who wants to steal the treasure protected by Marah Durimeh. It's a hard day's work for a hero! The most spectacular scenes are the fight on the salt lake where his dog becomes Kara's best help and the duel between Kara and the Machredsch - hanging on ropes from a mountain top! Abu Seif, the leader of the bandits, is played with vicious intensity by Sieghardt Rupp (you will remember him from "A Fistful of Dollars"). Less memorable: the Marah Durimeh character who is quite wasted compared to the charisma she had in the novel.
