Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Roger Moore was reluctant to accept the role at first, owing to the character being a cigarette smoker (he had recently stopped smoking cigarettes and gravitated to Monte Cristo cigars). As it was necessary for Rod Slater's character to smoke cigarettes rather than cigars Moore's objection was overruled, though his smoking scenes were reduced to a bare minimum.
  • There was considerable controversy regarding the film being made in South Africa under the apartheid regime.
  • The movie was only released as part of a double bill in the United States.
