Whereas Steve Carver is credited as the director in the American version of the film, the Italian version omits Carver and names "Michael Wotruba" as director instead. Michael Wotruba was a pseudonym then used by Joe D'Amato. D'Amato is credited in both versions as cinematographer under his birth name Aristide Massaccesi.

According to D'Amato, Carver ended up directing the scenes with dialogues whereas he himself took care of the fight sequences in the arena. See more
