Der Ölprinz Reviews:

RAMPAGE AT APACHE WELLS played theatrically in the US and used to receive a lot of TV enjoy as late as 1991. Its popularity is not difficult to understand. Like all of the German-made westerns from the "winnetou" cycle, based on the literary works of Karl May (this one from his novel The Oil Prince, which IS accessible in an in-print English translation for those so inclined), this is well-mounted, beautifully photographed, beautifully scored, and well-acted. As I remember, Lex Barker made SIX movies in the role of Old Shatterhand, Stewart Granger made two in the role of Old Surehand, and Rod Cameron made one in the role of Old Firehand (and I have not seen the latter...). As rugged and manly as Barker was, Granger also does well with the role, bringing his own special humor and elegance to the character. If only he had made more of these! One surprising appearance here is Terence Hill (under his true name, Mario Girotti) as a complex, not-really-admirable hero who grows throughout the movie and sees the error of his ways. Hill plays the snivelling role convincingly, and he will be a surprise to those who only know his soon heroic and comedy roles. Other interesting aspect of this movie (more evident in the novels than in most of the films) is the features about German immigrants in America. As I live in South Texas, I live near some of the German settlements of the 1800s and have learned about the history of Germans in Texas-- it's interesting to see particularly German qualities in some of the settlers instead of just making them generic Anglo settlers. Of course, I don't go to movies like this (or any film) for detailed history, but the particularity has a interesting flavor to it. The late Stewart Granger was a boy with true star quality, with a charm and wit and elegance that is seen in each frame. While he camps it up in some of his European work of the 1960s (although everytime in an entertaining manner!), he certainly took the role of Old Surehand seriously. He is a great mesh with Pierre Brice's warm but stoic interpretation of the Winnetou character. The movie also has a full array of colourful helping characters. Overall, while this may not have the depth or philosophical profundity of the finest Italian Westerns, it is a satisfying, impressively mounted Western that fires on all cylinders and deserves wider fame.


This is the second "Winnetou" western I've seen, and though I have yet to see more of the series, I'm getting the feeling they are more or less the same. Stewart Granger now makes a nice character - though starting to age, he has both a charm and a heroic presence that fits this particular "Hand" character he plays. Another than that, it's more of the same - great scenery, but bogged down by a leaden pace, blatant padding (especially toward the end) plus comic relief that's both utterly unfunny and childish. There is some interest in seeing a young Terence Hill, few years before he became a European superstar, and there is some amusement to see HIM being the one slapped and punched around for a change!


Fresh entry in long series including pretty characters , crossfire and superb Yugoslavian exteriors magnificently photographed ; included the beloved mates : the righteous leader of the Apaches, and his blood brother Old Surehand . It deals with a nasty businessman nicknamed The Oilprince (Harald Leipnitz) . He looks forward to a lucrative covenant with the "Western Arizona Bank¨ represented by an ambitious banker . He sells the bank some oil wells at Shelly Lake that do now not exist . Meanwhile , a group of colonists run by Bill Campbell (Walter Barnes) head to settle there . They are joined by Old Surehand (Stewart Granger) who agrees to escort them in a find for the precious lands . There is also a card user (Terence Hill or Mario Girotti) supporting the group , but he has dark intentions , he is really a traitor ; soon on , he falls in love with the woman (Macha Meril) in an enjoyable love storyline . Then , there takes zone an emotive meeting between and Winnetou (recently deceased -2015- Pierre Brice) and Old Surehand to carry out their nice purports and save them . As the heinous Oilprince to be aware that the settlers would like to settle at Shelly Lake . He , then , plans to exchange the scout of the settlers by one of his underlings to give them other route . But later the Oilprince has to recognize that he has not counted on Winnetou and his faithful half-brother Old Surehand , both of whom are on the trail to explore the truth . In spite of troubles caused by bandits led by unscrupulous Oilprince and some rebel Indians who seek revenge , they receive escape . Old Surehand set out on pursuit of Oilprince and his minions bandits and prepares them a trap . After that , the train wagon reaches ¨Shelly Lake¨ , a zone full of swift streams , risked falls and a risky river to cross in some spectacular scenes (most of them made by means of transparency) that are the highlights of the film . At the end takes zone a thrilling epilogue by means of shootouts and fire with no much sense .This is a thrilling and stirring journey based on Karl May novel with two agreeable roles , being stunningly played by Stewart Granger and Pierre Brice respectively . This is a so-so episode about one of the series of famous German made Western , featuring the duo who accept to tutorial the motley group trough Indian zone , both of them repeat their same notorious roles as dignified as everytime . This enjoyable saga benefits from sensational journeys , shoot'em up , betrayals , larger-than-life characters and overwhelming scenarios shot in Spandau, Berlin, Cetina river, Krka Falls, Krka National Park, Croatia and Perucko reservoir, Yugoslavia . Winnetou-Pierre Brice repeats , as usual, his perfect role to be continued in a TV series . Brice was descendant of old French nobility and considered to be one of the most popular and most loved actors in Germany and in the another countries in Eastern Europe , thanks to this role and starred few pictures as charming Indian Winnetou . He even received First Class Medal as one the most famous Frenchmen in Germany . In 1962, the German producer Horst Wendlandt searched for an actor who could enjoy the Native American chief and got to know Brice at the Berlin Movie Festival . He got the role and portrayed "Winnetou" in ten more films . Barker scored especially high marks , though he played as a serious and clever boy who joins forces with Winnetou , while Stewart Granger as Old Surehand performs with humor and joy , he's the excellent counterpoint to Winnetou . Enjoyable relationship between Old Surehand and Winnetou is quite match . The highbrow Lex Barker played the most part of series : ¨Apache gold (1963)¨ by Harald Reinl, ¨Apaches last War (1964)¨ by Hugo Fregonese, ¨Last of renegades(1964)¨, ¨The desperate trail¨, ¨Old Surehand¨ (1965) directed by Alfred Vohrer, ¨Old Shatterland(1966)¨ by Harald Philipp, ¨In the valley of death(1968)¨ by Harald Reinl . Stewart Granger took the role in two opportunities , he starred a diverse hero but the role is cute related to Old Shatterland , he plays with mirth and sympathetic manner as ¨Among vultures¨ and ¨Winnetou and Surehand¨ . Besides , Rod Cameron starred only one : ¨Old Firehand¨ in which chemistry between stuffy Cameron and Brice is inexistent . Great help cast such as the customary nasty Harald Leipnitz along with the Morocco girl : Macha Méril , Walter Barnes and ¡ Terence Hill ! prior his amusing movies with Bud Spencer testing as Trinidad and Bambino . In fact , Terence married an American woman of Bavarian descent , and learning German language , he starred few Germanic movies , before his successful Italian ones . The movie displays a colourful cinematography and a catching , sensitive musical score ,though with excessive test of synthesizer by Martin Bottcher , series's ordinary , being eventually replaced in some episode by Peter Thomas . The motion picture ¨Rampage at Apache Wells¨ or ¨Der Olprinz¨ by Harald Philipp was well produced by Rialto Movie Preben-Philipse/Horst Wendlandt /Constantin . The flick was professionally directed by Harald Philipp who made all type of categories : action , Western , Wartime , besides he was a German thriller expert named Krimi -Edward Wallace adaptation- and realized other Western titled : ¨"Winnetou and the Crossbreed" . Rating : 5.5/10 , acceptable and passable . Worthwhile seeing for marvelous landscapes and breathtaking outdoors from Yugoslavia , including rousing falls , canyon, rivers and mountains ; all of them as spectacular as Almeria -Spain- outdoors where at the same time were shot numerous European Western . In successive episodes the faithful half-brothers are ready on the trail to undertake another adventures.
