Inhalt

Manitou's Shoe

Move over Blazing Saddles and make room for this English-dubbed German box office record-breaking madcap Western spoof that holds nothing sacred.

The Apache Chief Abahachi and his blood brother Ranger are responsible for keeping peace in the Wild West.

The trouble all starts when Abahachi takes out a loan from the Shoshone Indians to buy a saloon for his tribe. It turns out that the real estate agent is no real estate agent at all - he′s a trickster and a really bad guy named Santa Maria. The saloon is only a façade and Santa Maria gets away with the money. To make matters worse, Abahachi and Ranger get blamed for the death of the Shoshone Chief′s son, Funny Rabbit. They′ve got no choice - they have to find the treasure that Abahachi′s grandfather Mad Cow bequeathed him many years ago, pay back the Shoshone and prove their innocence. Finding the treasure is not an easy matter, however, especially because Abahachi divided the treasure map into four parts and now can′t remember who he gave the other three parts to.

Writer/director/star Michael "Bully" Herbig shot this
film on locations once used by Sergio Leone. With adamant vigilance, he has realized his vision of absurd hilarity and absolute silliness.
