Following on the success of ''Film/DerSchatzImSilbersee'' and other {{West German|y}} {{Western}} movies, the {{East German|y}} DEFA studios produced ten Westerns for the domestic, Eastern bloc and international market. These portrayed the struggle of the [[UsefulNotes/NativeAmericans American Indians]] against the advancing United States as inspirational, but tragic examples of anti-imperialist and anti-capitalist struggle. In keeping with this, the films were not called Westerns, but ''Indianerfilme'' ("Indians movies").
