The story of Hadji Murad, a 19th-century Chechen chieftain who led his warriors in a fight against the invading forces of the Russian Czar.
Warner Brothers had handled the original U.S. distribution of "Hercules" (1958) and "Hercules Unchained" (1959). When they released this in the United States two years later, in 1961, they promoted this as if it were another Hercules type movie. Their original U.S. one-sheet showed a shirtless Steve Reeves with a sword in one hand and swinging a huge chain in the other while about to stomp an opponent with spike-soled boots. Of course, there was no such scene in the movie.
You're a stubborn minx but I like you all the better for it because I know you're not afraid of anything. I hope our children will resemble you.
For the U.S. English dubbed version, released through Warner Brothers, the name of director Riccardo Freda was listed in the credits as "Richard Freda."
