Trivia

In one scene Oliver Reed was supposed to unlock Fabio Testi's handcuffs and drag him out of the car but Oliver couldn't get the small keys to fit in the cuffs. After 3 takes he got frustrated and threw the keys which happened to fall into a sewer drain. Fabio was left in handcuffs for two hours before more keys could be located.
Director Sergio Sollima said in an interview that Oliver Reed was good to work with until 2 or 3 in the afternoon because then his alcoholism would become difficult to work with. Star Fabio Testi also expressed that it was both exciting and difficult to work with Reed due to his alcoholism, and he would become violent on the set on many occasions.
