Telly Savalas, despite receiving second billing, does not appear in the movie until about one hour in [uncut version]. See more »
Telly Savalas' character repeatedly makes reference to Charles Bronson's character being a generation under him. In reality, the two have only a three-month age difference with Bronson actually being older. See more »
This is a very underrated gangster pic that stars "Old Stoneface" himself. The plot is standard revenge fodder with a few twists added in for fun. It's pretty fast paced in it's execution and Morricone score is weird and atmostpheric. This is one of Charlie's better 70's efforts and the final scene is great filmmaking. It's too bad Ms. Ireland's nude scenes were cut out (only her midsection and cleavage are shown before cutting to the next scene) cause she can't act worth a damn.
