Alternate Versions

Due to legal differences the music has been altered in the VHS and DVD releases and will remain altered in all subsequent TV and cinema screenings: The original main theme has been re-composed and during the end credits a new original song replaces Lou Bega's "Keep on smiling".
Several scenes were scripted and filmed but not included in the final cut (however, some outtakes from the scenes are showed during the end credits):
  • an alternative beginning influenced by Sergio Leone western movies;
  • an extended scene in which Ranger goes through the town and townsmen are escaping;
  • several extended parts of scenes who remained in the film (e. g. a longer conversation with Karl May);
  • an extended scene with Winnetouch and Hombre; an extended scene with Dimitri in the burning ranch;
  • the Schoschonen arriving at the Puder Rosa ranch;
  • a scene with Dimitri before the cave;
  • a love scene with Ranger and Uschi at night.
In the summer of 2002 the film was re-released in Germany as "Der Schuh des Manitu - Extra Large" with 8 minutes of newly shot footage. This footage is called "The Prologue" and deals with the birth and childhood of the main characters Winnetouch and Abahachi.
