The film predates First Blood
(1982), the film which introduced audiences to the John Rambo of David Morrell
by seven years. Tomas Milian
happened to read David Morrell's novel while flying from the U.S. to Rome. Loving the story he tried to talk some Italian producers into making a film out of it, with him starring as John Rambo. Nothing came of this, but he was allowed to use the Rambo moniker in the next poliziottesco he starred in, Syndicate Sadists
(1975). The film does not borrow elements from the novel, with Umberto Lenzi
stating he was more influenced by the crime films of Don Siegel
