The Treasure of the Silver Lake (German: Der Schatz im Silbersee) is a 1962 German western film directed by Harald Reinl. It is very loosely based on Karl May's 1891 novel of the same name. It was shot in Yugoslavia and was the first in the highly successful Winnetou film series by Rialto Film.


Fred Engel's father is murdered by Colonel Brinkley in order to acquire a treasure map, however the Colonel only acquires half of it, the other half is held by Mrs. Butler. Discovering the scene of the crime, Old Shatterhand and Winnetou help Fred bring his father's murderer to justice and locate the treasure of Silver Lake.


Box office

It was the highest-grossing film of 1962 in West Germany, selling 10 million tickets and grossing 8.6 million.[1] In France, it was the 29th top-grossing film of 1963, selling 1,656,736 tickets.[2] In the Soviet Union, the film sold 39.8 million tickets.[3] This adds up to a total of 42,456,736 tickets sold worldwide.

The film was a phenomenal success, predating that of Sergio Leone's films. This helped provide a cultural and financial context for the later Spaghetti Western films.[4]
