Did You Know?


Apaches attired as Plains Indians, and living in Pueblos like Hopis is way out of whack. Indian chief has more brass tacks on his rifle than a Kate Spade purse. It's hard to believe that the same people that engineered Mercedes Benz, Porsche, and Audi made this clunker. Even for a Spaghetti western, you really have to struggle to suspend disbelief.

Pretty good Schnitzel/Gibanica Western , being third installment in Winnetou saga filled with action , thrills , shots and colorful landscapes from Yugoslavia
31 May 2014 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Again the unforgettable Winnetou and Old Shatterhand in a dangerous adventure set on wonderful outdoors is this German/Yugoslavian co-production . Adventures , action , crossfire and gorgeous Yugoslavian exteriors magnificently photographed . This is a thrilling and stirring adventure based on Karl May trilogy with two agreeable characters as Old Shatterhand and Winnetou, being stunningly played by Lex Barker and Pierre Brice respectively . As always , and at the beginning , there takes place an emotive meeting between Winnetou (Pierre Brice) and Old Shatterhand (Lex Barker who married Spanish Carmen Cervera who subsequently wedded Baron Thyssen) . It deals with a land baron and his hoodlum Rollins (Rick Battaglia) , a ruthless bandit , both of whom spread a reign of terror and attempt to take Indian lands , expelling them from their territories . As powerful owners want to create a war between the native American tribes and the white men . The settlers moving westward, attempt to break the friendship between the whites and the Indians and wage war among them . Old Shatterhand, Winnetou and their sidekick , the ordinary Sam Hawkens (likeable Ralf Wolter who carries out the comic relief) try to prevent this . Winnetou and Shatterland have an encounter with governor (Carl Lange) of Santa Fe who promises peace and free lands for Indians . Then , the warring Jicarillos' chief, White Buffalo (Dusan Antonijevic) , allies with villain Rollins and the latter kills Quick Panther (Slobodan) , White Buffalo's son , stabbing him in the back with Winnetou's knife , then Winnetou is accused of the murder . It is up to Old Shatterhand to save his friend . Old Shatterland frees his faithful half-brother and both of whom are on the trail to chase the nasty Rollins but they are double-crossed . In spite of troubles caused by bandits , they get escape . Later on , Winnetou attempts a treaty of peace and prepares a summit between the Indian tribes , Jicarillos, and Mescaleros Apaches along with band of Rollins but he is betrayed . At the end , there occurs a breathtaking epilogue by means of shootouts , merciless pursuits and a surprising death , Winnetou , although we all know that he is immortal and following a lot of episodes .

This Western/Adventure results to be one of the best episodes about one of the series of popular German made Western , featuring the duo formed by valiant ¨Old Shatterhand¨ and shiny ¨Winnetou¨ , both of them repeat their same notorious roles as dignified as always . This enjoyable saga benefits from sensational adventures , shootouts , fireworks , exciting combats, larger-than-life characters and spectacular scenarios shot in Atelier, Spandau, Berlin, Germany (studio),Grobnicko Polje, Croatia ,Kredarica, Lukovo, Plitvice, Yugoslavia ,Postojna cave, Radmanove Linice valley, Stobrec quarry, Yugoslavia,cement factory, Solin, Split, Croatia and Trogir , Croacia .

Winnetou-Pierre Brice repeats , as usual, his excellent and immortal role to be continued in a TV series. Lex Barker scores especially high marks , though he plays as a serious and intelligent frontiersman . Enjoyable relationship between Old Shatterhand and Winnetou is quite match . Pierre Brice is sensational as Winnetou , he is descendant of old French nobility , after enlisting as volunteer to the French Army and fighting in Indochina, he attended acting lessons and got a first small role in some film . In 1962, a German producer searched for an actor who should play the Native American chief Winnetou on a Western movie adapted from novels by Karl May and got to know Brice at the Berlin Film Festival . He got the role and portrayed "Winnetou" in ten more movies with his co-star Lex Barker as "Old Shatterhand". These very successful productions made him a superstar in Germany, winning several awards such as Bambi or the Golden Otto of teenager magazine "Bravo". Furthermore , received Germany's Cross of Merit, First Class as one the most popular Frenchmen in Germany . Although appearing on countless other movies and TV shows, he will always be best remembered as "Winnetou", whom he also played at the Bad Segeberg open air theater.

The highbrow Lex Barker who like his co-star and good friend Pierre Brice started a singing career and released several records and 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 Surehand¨ (1965) directed by Alfred Vohrer, ¨Old Shatterland(1966)¨ by Harald Philipp, ¨In the valley of death(1968)¨ by Harald Reinl . Stewart Granger as ¨Surehand¨ took the role in two occasions , he starred a diverse character but the role is pretty similar to Old Shatterland , he plays with mirth and sympathetic manner as ¨Among vultures¨ and ¨Winnetou and Surehand¨ . Besides , Rod Cameron starred only one : ¨Old Firehand¨ in which chemistry between stuffy Cameron and Brice is inexistent . The film displays a colorful cinematography and a catching as well as sensitive musical score , though with excessive use of synthesizer by Martin Bottcher , series's ordinary , being eventually replaced in some episode by Peter Thomas . The motion picture well produced by customary Horst Wendlandnt was professionally directed by Harald Reinl who realized various Karl May titles , besides he was a German thriller expert called Krimi - Edward Wallace adaptation- and filmed another Western as ¨The last Mohican¨ and an epic rendition , ¨Nibelungen ¨ starred by Terence Hill and his wife Karin Dor ; unfortunately Harald Reinl died a few years ago , he committed suicide in Santa Cruz De Tenerife , Islas Canarias . Rating : 7 , entertaining and spectacular outing . Worthwhile seeing for marvelous landscapes and breathtaking outdoors from Yugoslavia and Croatia.
