Synopsis

The blood brothers, Abahachi and Ranger, are betrayed by the bandit Santa Maria, and the Shoshones are after their scalps. They all meet again when the blood brothers, together with Uschi, Dimitri and Abahachi's homosexual twin brother, Winnetouch, search for a treasure which is buried inside a hill named "Manitou's Shoe".

Comment

Well directed and incredibly funny parody on the famous German Winnetou films. With the humour ranging as usual from subtle to vulgar, it became one of the most successful German films ever.
