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. 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. 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."
I am Sartana, Your Angel of Death was released in November 1969.
