[quote=“scherpschutter, post:23, topic:469”]It’s a Kara Ben Nemsi film, set in the Orient, so officially you can’t call it a western.
The funny thing is, when you watch it, you’ll have the idea you’re simply watching an Old Shatterhand movie that is a bit bizarre, as if the director wasn’t one hunderd percent concentrated.
Is that an Indian or is it Sam Hawkins in disguise?
No, it’s a Croat dressed up like a Sjeich, wenn ich mich nicht irre.
Otherwise everything is as usual: Lex is Barker, Croatia as much the Middle East as the far West and I guess May hardly ever saw an Arab (or an Apache for that matter).[/quote]
The thing is, that Old Shatterhand and Kara Ben Nemsi are the same persons. They both are the alter egos of Karl May. One in the west, one in the orient.
