This was the very last film distributed by Allied Artists Corporation (early in its life, Allied Artists was known as Monogram Pictures, which was responsible for all the "Bowery Boys" movies). Citing extreme financial difficulties, Allied Artists filed for Chapter 11 in late 1978, and the following year their entire backlog (including the Monogram films) was purchased by Lorimar/Telepictures Corporation. When Lorimar itself was purchased by Time Warner, Inc. a decade later, Warner Bros. became the owner of the Allied Artists/Monogram backlog (on some TV prints of the "Bowery Boys" features, the "WB Shield" logo precedes the opening credits).

One of the few (only?) westerns where sex is the main motivator, a wonderful spaghetti western with Fabio Testi and Jenny Agutter, with Warren Oates and a rare performance by Sam Peckingpaugh. An important film in the ouvre of Monte Hellman, quintessential 70's cult director; a man who has made more great films than Coppola yet remains mostly unknown in his home country. See "Two-Lane Blacktop," "Cockfighter," and "The Shooting."
