A sequel to this movie, A Matter of Wife... and Death
(1975), was made for television around three years later, and first broadcast in 1976. The follow-up does not feature Burt Reynolds
as Shamus McCoy where the role was played by Rod Taylor
instead. It was once reported in the media that Reynolds intended to appear in the sequel to this movie, but this did not happen. Producer Robert Weitman
produced both movies with actors Larry Block
and Joe Santos
appearing in both films. See more
