Adios, Sabata!, one of the few English language films available by Denver’s own Dean Reed.
Dean Reed was a singer, actor and possibly the biggest star of Eastern Europe and South America during the 1960s & ’70s, though completely unknown in the States. An avowed Marxist, he never joined the communist party and never renounced his U.S. citizenship. He even continued to pay his U.S. taxes during his 25 years overseas.
Dean was found dead in Zeuthener Lake, East Berlin in 1986, shortly after announcing a desire to return to Colorado. Was it an accidental drowning, a suicide, or was it murder at the hands of the KGB as many believe? Was Dean Reed really a double-agent working for the CIA to spy on the Stasi and KGB?
Dean Reed is buried in Boulder where his many Eastern-European fans decorate his grave with gifts daily!
