Trivia

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. See more »

I'm not a huge fan of cheap Italian films that over use the zoom so they don't have to cut the film.

That said, this movie is one of the better ones.

It's well done.

It's a colorful movie that is rather fast paced.

The acting is good too as is the direction.

Oliver Reed is in it and for some reason they dubbed him with an American voice!
