According to the film's production notes, director Dom DeLuise appreciated the contribution made to the film by uncredited consultant editor Margaret Booth, who emphasized to him the important of prioritizing editing of emotional content over action story elements; Booth received a "special thanks" billing in the film's closing credits.

[Puts his arm around the foot-shorter Ramon]
Well, I like you. Tomorrow at noon, you may climb me.
Come on. He ain't that short.
Man with Cigars:
Oh yeah? Well, then, how come he spent last month dangling from my car mirror?

On original 1.66:1 film negatives intended for exhibition at movie theaters in a 1.85:1 aspect ratio, the "far view" version of the 1976 Columbia Pictures "Sunburst" logo in 1.85:1 (cropped to 1.66:1 to open movies by Columbia in 1.66:1 released during the 1976-1981 era) is used. On home media and TV, the Academy ratio version is used instead. See more »
It's funny how it was decades since viewing this movie again but I always remembered Dom DeLuise experimenting and lighting up a joint, and then laughing hysterically. That laugh put me in tears laughing so hard at him laughing and wheezing!
DeLuise, who I was sorry to see abuse the Lord's name in vain so much in this film, at least early on, is still fun to watch as are his partners in crime in this story: Suzanne Pleshette, Jerry Reed and Ossie Davis. Actually, DeLuise, Reed and Pleshette play undercover cops in a sting operation, if you can believe that!
If you enjoy seeing oddball characters, you'll like this movie. It certainly has it's share of wackos.
