Thrilling and touching story about Old Surehand and Winnetou , well performed by Granger and Brice
6 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

This is a highly entertaining film based on Karl May trilogy novels , it starts with Old Surehand ( Stewart Granger ) in an exciting opening sequence when he rides onto the screen and soon rescues to train passengers attacked by bandits . After that , the outlaws killing American buffalo for originating a war against white-men . Later on , Indians raid a ranch , the Indian chief's son comes to the little town for a peace treatise but he's treacherously murdered . Meanwhile , Old Sureland befriends an old man ad his nephew ( Letitia Milan who played the first Mario Bava's Giallo: ¨Girl who knew too much¨ ) and his fiancé , a judge assistant ( Terence Hill or Mario Girotti, previous his successful Trinity ). There's an emotional love story between them , and they are taken prisoners by Indians . Sureland set on pursuit of his killer's brother and attempts to pacify the Indians . Of course , he encounters his Indian-brother Winnetou ( Pierre Brice ) at an emotional meeting . The clues lead a gunrunner named the General ( Larry Pennell ).

This is an agreeable episode about one of the series of popular German made Western , featuring the duo formed by valiant ¨Old Surehand¨ and immortal ¨Winnetou¨ , they repeat their same noted roles as dignified as always . This enjoyable saga benefits from sensational adventures , shootouts , larger-than-life characters and spectacular scenarios shot in Yugoslavia . Stewart Granger took the role in two occasions ( ¨Among vultures¨ and this one ) and Pierre Brice starred all the series and he went on filming television episodes . Chemistry between them is quite match , Stewart Granger scores especially high marks , he plays with mirth and liking manner . His predecessor was the serious Lex Barker who starred a diverse character but the roles are pretty similar , he played the most part of series : ¨Apache gold(1963)¨ by Harald Reinl, ¨Apaches last Battle(1964)¨ by Hugo Fregonese, ¨Last of renegades(1964)¨, ¨The desperate trail¨, ¨Old Shatterland(1966)¨ by Harald Philipp, ¨In the valley of death(1968)¨ by Harald Reinl , besides Rod Cameron starred only one : ¨Old Firehand¨ directed by Alfred Vohrer. The film displays a colorful cinematography and a catching musical score by usual series , Martin Bottcher . The motion picture produced by Rialto Productions is convincingly directed by Alfred Vohrer who directed various Karl May titles , besides he was a German thriller expert called Krimi ( Edward Wallace adaptation ) .
