Abahachi, Chief of the Apache Indians, and his blood brother Ranger maintain peace and justice in the Wild West. One day, Abahachi needs to take up a credit from the Shoshone Indians to finance his tribe's new saloon. Unfortunately Santa Maria, who sold the saloon, betrays Abahachi, takes the money and leaves. Soon, the Shoshones are on the warpath to get their money back, and Abahachi is forced to organize it quickly. Luckily, he, his twin brother Winnetouch, beautiful dancer Uschi and the Greek Dimitri each own a quarter of a treasure map that leads them to 'the shoe of Manitu'. There, Santa Maria already awaits them to take their new treasure away as well. But he did not think about the determination of Abahachi's team.Written by

When the Indian Chief - Listiger Lurch - asks for a war hatchet, one of his assistants responds - in a fake Apache dialect - that it got broken because the one they bought had a very cheap quality. The last word he utters in this fake dialect is "Tchibo". Tchibo is a chain of stores very popular in Germany, which is characterized by selling a handful of generic items at low prices. See more »

As the credits begin to roll, outtakes from the film are shown. See more »
Several scenes were scripted and filmed but not included in the final cut (however, some outtakes from the scenes are showed during the end credits):
an alternative beginning influenced by Sergio Leone western movies;
an extended scene in which Ranger goes through the town and townsmen are escaping;
several extended parts of scenes who remained in the film (e. g. a longer conversation with Karl May);
an extended scene with Winnetouch and Hombre; an extended scene with Dimitri in the burning ranch;
A wonderful comedy about Abahachi and Ranger who upon escaping from the hostile Schoschone tribe embark on a quest to find buried treasure of the Apache people. Little do they know that they are followed by the notorious Santa Maria gang but everything changes most unexpectedly when Abahachi's twin brother Winnetouch emerges. Yes, I know, this film was not just a hit, it was a smash in the German speaking part of the world. They should definitely have done it in English, only this way could it achieve a wider release and, I hope, recognition it really deserves. Down here in Russia Manitu's shoe came out in a single ( can you imagine it ) movie theatre in Moscow! No wonder, it went unnoticed. It was not until two years later that the film hit TV and we realized how much we missed. The movie became the top selling DVD overnight. I remember dropping at some video store and asking if they had Manitu's shoe, the salesman told me that this DVD was unavailable then because of an overwhelming demand. He said: Whenever we get this film, it is sold out within a couple of hours. Personally I love this film immensely. Very entertaining, with snappy writing, it pokes fun at an all too familiar genre. The cast is excellent, I enjoyed every moment of this movie and I want to see it again and again.
