Storyline

In the latter half of the 19th century, gold is discovered in the Black Hills, an area which has already been allocated to the Dakota Indians as a winter reservation in a treaty. Nevertheless, gold diggers, profiteers and adventurers flock to the region. Among them is the hard-hearted land speculator Bludgeon, who tries to expel the Indians using brutal methods like slaughtering entire herds of buffalo. The Dakotas take their revenge by attacking a Union Pacific train. While Chief Farsighted Falcon and his men are out hunting, Bludgeon and his gang massacre the Indian village. The Dakota warriors retaliate and soon the gold diggers' town becomes the scene of a giant battle. Only the advancing cavalry manage to head off certain defeat for the Whites. Farsighted Falcon conquers Bludgeon in single combat, however. Gathering up the remaining members of his tribe, he leads them to safety elsewhere. Written by DEFA Film Library

The black hills of... Georgia
9 April 2007 | by unbrokenmetalSee all my reviews

From the dancing native Americans, a sudden cut to a locomotive rushing threateningly towards the camera, puffing clouds of dirty black smoke. Inside the wagons, a discussion about the Indians takes place. Many whites want their land at the Black Hills. "Kill'em all!", someone demands unscrupulously. Bludgeon (Hannjo Hasse) wears black because he is the leader of the bad guys and replies: "That's not a bad thought...". It seems even better, though still inhuman, after gold is discovered in the hills! The barren mountains of Georgia (belonging to the Soviet Union at that time) provide an impressive location. "Spur des Falken" is one of the westerns from behind the iron curtain, an uncanny sub-genre regularly starring Yugoslavian actor Gojko Mitic who had experience from the West German Karl May films. "Spur des Falken" knows how to keep the action moving and its photography is lively and colorful - good craftsmanship, all in all. Its well deserved success led to a sequel: "Weisse Wölfe".
