Storyline

In Peru, the land of the Incas, the Indian pin their hopes on Jaucarapora. They want to him as their king who could drive back the white conquistador. A stranger appears in Lima who risks his life to rescue the president from a charging wildcat. This Jaguar is accused of the two Incas' murder. The president gives him four weeks to prove his innocence. No matter where the Jaguar goes, the craftily circulated news that he is wanted killer is always there ahead of him. Graciela, his dead brother's daughter, sets out alone to forewarn him. The Jaguar finds out that Gambusino has killed his brother and Jinaucarapora's father. Jaucarapora meets Graciela and saves her life. They fall in love each other. Gambusino tries to kill the Jaguar but perishes himself. Graciela persuades Jaucarapora that an uprising against the incomparably stronger whites will ruin his people for good. He rejects the sacred crown. The last Inca suffers death at the hands of his own mentor. Written by Georgi Djulgerov <georgidjul1943@gmail.com>

Marischka meets May
30 June 2016 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

If you know a bit about the popular German movies that were based on Karl May's works, you will also know that Austrian filmmaker Georg Marischka was not exactly one who worked on many of these adaptations, but had successes in entirely different areas of film. Maybe this is also one reason why "Das Vermächtnis des Inka" is nowhere near the most known Karl May works. Another may be the lack of Brice and Barker here. Of course, Madison, Battaglia, Rey and last but not least Heinz Erhardt were stars in their own right, but maybe this was not their best area of film in terms of the genre. Then again, I am not a fan of most of the other May films, so I may be biased here and it was not surprising that I found the film and the story extremely forgettable. It was probably more the writers' fault than the actors', but I am not sure if this refers to May or Marischka who also adapted the novel work. Overall, my verdict for "Legacy of the Incas" is negative. The only aspect, as usual, were the great landscapes and sets on some occasions, but this cannot make up for the deficits in many other areas. Watch something else instead.
