A man disguised as Sartana leads a gang in robbing a bank of $300,000. While the real Sartana tries to prove his innocence and find the imposter, he is constantly pursued by bounty hunters: some who only care about the $10,000 reward on his head, a few who are more interested in locating the stolen money and one who mixes bad luck at gambling with good luck in bounty-hunting.



Carnimeo stated that Gianni Garko who plays Sartana came up with many of the illustions and tricks that Sartana would perform in the film.[5] Unlike Gianfranco Parolini, the director of If You Meet Sartana Pray for Your Death, Carnimeo stated he did not have any issues shooting the film with Klaus Kinski.[5] Carnimeo said that Kinski arrived on set, proceeded to costumes and make-up and then on set and that Kinski was "meticulous and precise like a Swiss watch."[5]


I am Sartana, Your Angel of Death was released in November 1969.[6]
