The film originally began principal photography in July 1979. Once the filmmakers delivered the first cut, re-shoots were held in early 1981. A version of the film debuted in Europe throughout 1982. U.S. distributor New World acquired the film and significantly re-edited the picture by removing a lot of the comedy before debuting it in August 1984. In addition to editing, New World replaced the original score by John Addison with a more suspenseful score by Christopher Young. See more »
The 1984 New World Pictures theatrical version was a re-edited film completed in Los Angeles because the original cut had such a confusing plot that audiences couldn't follow it. This version is present on the 1985 Embassy VHS release. See more »
Peter Carter's last film (The late director of Rituals, Wolf Dog and The Intruder Within) directs this comedy and action film with Richard Harris as an undercover cop. Some of the scenes could very well be funny another film like this was made called Kuffs with Christian Slater. Carter supposely died of a Heart Attack shortly after this films release.
