On this page I've collected availableitems I found on Lex Barker. The books are written in German and I think they are not available in English, but nevertheless most of them are worth being bought because of their wonderful pictures. Some DVDs do only have the German version, which is a pity not only to foreign collectors, but some DVDs are available both German and English. The CD is original of course ... ;-)
The following collection is surely not complete, and I can't guarantee the mentioned topics to be available, but they are offered at the time. There surely are some other shops which offer the same topics, we do not want to favour special companies.
I appreciate suggestions and additional hints to this list at any time! Just send me a Mail! I want to thank everybody who helped keeping this list timely by sending information!
Hint: Some Karl-May movies have been released in May 2005 with English version, too! For more information see below.
Last updated: 01-24-2016
A new book on Lex Barker and his movies, mainly the Karl May movies, will be released in March 2014 by Karl May Verlag. (German Language only)
A new edition of Reiner Boller's Lex Barker biography has been released by Schwarzkopf & Schwarzkopf-Verlag. (German Language only) A must for all Lex Barker fans and friends! Don't fail to buy this book! The new edition contains new interviews with contemporaries, new pics and other stuff.
This book doesn't replace Arild Rafalzik's biography because they contain some different pictures and stories.
Ok, all books that we are going to introduce here are written in German. They are well worth their weight in gold though, even if you're unable to speak German. Arilds biography is filled with nice pictures and Lex Barkers lifestory.
Seems to be out of print.
This is mainly filled with pics and posters and movie stills from Lex Barker. An eye-candy store for every Barker fan.
Seems to be out of print.
Now at last something for our english speaking visitors: Karl May Books in English!
Nemsi Books publishes English translations of Karl-May books.

On May 2nd 2005 a new Karl May Collector's Box has been released, containing
3 Boxes each with 3 films. Quality is superb, but the best news is:
2 films of each box are in German and in English, too!
A very detailed critique can be found here! (German)
Box 1 "Der Mythos lebt!":
Box 2 "Winnetou trifft Old Surehand":
Box 3 "Winnetou reitet wieder":
Information on the English dubbing can be found on the dubbing page now.
No need for a table, because there's just one record with Lex as far as I know. The songs are available on CD today:
Winnetou du warst mein Freund
Bear Family Records P.O. BOX 1154
D-27727Hambergen - Germany
BCD 15984 AH Released in 1996
Available for example at jpc for 16,99 Euro.
Containes the two only songs ever recorded with Lex, both from 1965:
If you don't understand the text - don't mind, it's not worth translating it, but the melodies are very nice and Lex' voice is simply great!
