50th Anniversary for the Premier of “Showdown for a Badman”


Today marks the 50th Anniversary for the premier of “Showdown for a Badman” directed by Demofilo Fidani using the alias Miles Deem. The film starred Klaus Kinski, Hunt Powers and Gordon Mitchell. The story tells the tale of Dan Hagen, the brains behind a gang of desperadoes operating near the Mexican border. When his two brothers are killed by the Nevada Kid in retaliation for the murder of his own brothers, he flips out, and shoots one of his own men for delivering the news. Hagen sends his right-hand henchman Tamayo to exact revenge on those responsible. The gang sets fire to a ranch, killing everyone, but not before Tamayo leaves behind a piece of evidence – the musical watch that Hagen had given one of his brothers. The watch is found by Sam and given to the Nevada Kid when he returns home to find his family slaughtered. The Nevada Kid teams up with a cackling bounty hunter named John to find the owner of the watch.
