Though it wasn't released in the US until after several other "Winnetou" pictures had played in the States, this was the first in a series of European-produced Westerns based on the novels of Germany's Karl May. Barker stars as the basic cowboy hero Old Shatterhand who, with his faithful

Apache companion Winnetou (Brice), thwarts villainy at every turn. In this entry, Barker and Brice have to take on evil white men who have started a war between Apaches and Comanches in a land-grab scheme. A standard B western plot is helped somewhat by outstanding photography. Barker would star

as Old Shatterhand in four more pictures before being succeeded by Stewart Granger, who played the role in the final three films of the series. Brice continued in the role of Winnetou throughout the series.
