Storyline

Farsighted Falcon, the Dakota chief, seeks refuge in the Black Hills with his wife Blue Hair and two warriors, the sole survivors of his tribe, in order to join part of the Cheyenne headed by Chief Little Wolf. On the way, they are attacked by the bandit Jim Bashan and his gang. On the orders of mining boss Harrington, Bashan is terrorizing the inhabitants of Tanglewood and regularly stealing goods from the successful trader Sam Blake. Blue Hair is shot by Bashan from behind. Farsighted Falcon pursues him to Tanglewood where he befriends Sheriff Patterson, an honorable man, who wants to help him. Together, they prevent a raid on a shipment of money belonging to Blake. Patterson tries to prove to the incensed citizens of Tanglewood that Bashan is behind the robberies, but the city had surrendered itself to the mining company long ago. Boss Harrington now gives the orders. He revokes the sheriff's badge and incites the whites to lynch the Indians. Although Farsighted Falcon manages to ... Written by DEFA Film Library

Darker sequel to "Spur des Falken"
9 April 2007 | by unbrokenmetalSee all my reviews

"Weisse Wölfe" is the sequel to "Spur des Falken". The wife of Chief Weitspähender Falke (Gojko Mitic) is murdered by bandits. His search for revenge leads him to Tanglewood, a town which is under control of the bandits. Great performance again by Rolf Hoppe as the vicious Bashan, by the way! Sheriff Patterson and his wife hope to improve the situation. When the money of Sam Blake (convincing actor: Helmut Schreiber) is stolen by the bandits, it seems a few allies might unite, but they don't seem to have a real chance.

The dramatic music of the movie, often led by powerful brass instruments, does well to enhance its effect. The East German "Weisse Wölfe" tells its story in a much darker mood than contemporary Karl May films of the West German cinema, showing at the beginning how the natives are forced to go into reservations and struggle for survival, an attempt which seems doomed. It is difficult to say though how much it might be influenced by movies like John Ford's "Cheyenne Autumn".
