Trivia

Initially, Producer Horst Wendlandt planned to do an "Old Surehand" trilogy (that's why this film was announced as "Old Surehand - Part 1"). However, after this first film wasn't the expected box office success, the other two parts were never made. See more »

Goofs

Stewart Granger's character lassos a man off a raft about to go over a waterfall, the next scene shows Stewart from in front and below looking up at him pulling the rope in and the waterfall is above and behind him. See more »

one of the worst westerns I've ever seen
13 December 2008 | by (Belpre, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Wow, I can't believe that anyone would give this movie a good review. There are so many problems with it I don't even know where to start. The dialog is so laughable, each scene so preposterous, it is just bizarre.

Just as an example, in the waterfall scene, a mans starts to go over the waterfall in a raft but is saved by a lasso from Stewart Granger and pulled off the raft at the last second; in the next shot Stewart Granger is pulling in the rope with the man attached and behind and above him is most of the waterfall. The whole movie is like this, with dialog that has no pretext and scenes that have no context, so many goofs and continuity issues it would take longer to write about that than the movie itself.

The plot is not bad, it was just so poorly written with such absurd dialog that it has to be a foreign-made or produced film. No accomplished western producer could have made such a laughable excuse. I feel for Stewart Granger that he was part of such a ridiculous movie. And the way he had the rifle cradled in his left arm in every scene regardless of the setting made me want to giggle uncontrollably.

Old Surehand. Might as well have been named old dumb*ss.
