Lots of one-and-done names on both sides of the camera.
Over half the credited cast and a dozen credited crew members aren't even currently in the database.Actually, Dan Fleenor (not even in the database at the moment), who was the credited stunt co-ordinator and choreographed and supervised all the chase sequences, was the leader of the Hurricane Hell-Drivers who performed at fairs, expositions and in front of many dirt-track grandstands primarily in the southeastern U.S. He was also the stunt-driver who doubled the race-driving for Clark Gable in 1950's "To Please a Lady." Most of the cast/crew were Miami-based and, for the time period, there were more Blacks on both sides of the camera than the usual norm, including Eugene Small who was head of the Sound. Executive Producer K. Gordon Murray, not known for missing any sliver of exploitation, advised the exhibitors to make use of the Black Newspapers and Black radio stations in their area by pointing this out. Well and good, except the vast majority of the bookings for the film weren't in theatres that had Black-owned theatres or radio stations in their vicinity.
Lois Lee and "The Brooklyn Bridge" (led by Johnny Maestro)performed the three songs used in the film and are on-screen. None of the songs used were written by Johnny Maestro.
Most of the film's distribution came from states rights outfits, such as Eric Distributing Company in Dallas, and was, to say the least, somewhat limited. The running time on original release was 91 minutes. The video version (if it is indeed 72 minutes)appears to be more than a little bit edited.
