Director Noel Black described making this film as a series of compromises made in order to please 20th Century Fox. Black originally planned to cast a young, unknown Al Pacino as Tony Hall, but this was just one of the things he had to forsake. Black also disagreed with the ethical issues about filmmaking brought up in the script, wanted to change them but couldn't. See more »
My recollection is that when I first saw this film (maybe at a drive-in) it was rated X, had a scene of male frontal nudity (Forster) and was actually first shown in theaters (some theaters anyway) under the title of Run, Shadow, Run. Can anyone verify this? I too saw the PG version once on TV years ago but last night saw the TV-MA (R?) version on Fox Movie Channel. This version seemed to have some scenes cut though I cannot be sure. A friend also told me at the time (he later became a film editor for Variety) that there was a trailer for the film that was a vicious diatribe against the studio for restricting the directorial control of Black. I was quite taken with the version I saw then, in part because I thought Black, the director of Pretty Poison, was an outstanding new director. Unfortunately his films after Pretty Poison have never lived up to it on subsequent viewings.
