The Hunchback and the Smoker - For A Few Dollars More (1965)
Klaus Kinski Month begins with one of his early appearances outside of Germany, in the Clint Eastwood Spaghetti Western For a Few Dollars More, which was a sequel to A Fistful of Dollars. Both films were directed by Sergio Leone and scored by Ennio Morricone.
In For a Few Dollars More, The Man With No Name (Clint Eastwood) teams up with the mysterious Colonel Douglas Mortimer (Lee Van Cleef) to collect a bounty on a Mexican bandit known as "El Indio" (Gian Maria Volontè). Eastwood's character is in it for the money. Unknown to everyone until the end, Mortimer is in it for revenge. Years ago, El Indio had violated and murdered Mortimer's sister. El Indio is in the habit of playing a musical pocketwatch when he intends to kill someone. When the chimes end, he shoots his victim.
The pocketwatch belonged to Mortimer's sister.
Klaus Kinski plays a hunchback called "Wild" - a vicious member of El Indio's gang. When the gunslinging bounty hunters first run into each other, it's in El Paso, where El Indio is planning to rob the bank. El Indio's gang members are told to be on their best behavior and to make no trouble.
Colonel Mortimer accepts a light graciously from Wild in El Paso...
Later, in a border town, they are happily re-acquainted over dinner
