LETCHER, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota man is showing off his handiwork closer to home as one of his creations is seen on silver screens around the world.

Doug Hansen owns the Hansen Wheel & Wagon Shop. One of his stagecoaches is featured in Quentin Tarantino’s newest film, The Hateful Eight.

To recognize his work and to celebrate the film beginning its run in Mitchell, Hansen brought a “sister stagecoach” to the one used in the film to the Luxury 5 Cinemas in Mitchell on Friday.

Hansen tells The Daily Republic (https://bit.ly/1WBiXoO ) that his clientele is typically museums, private collectors and corporate entities, though he does get tapped for show business occasionally.

He says usually companies will rent his coaches for a project, but said Tarantino bought the coach for his new movie.
