At the beginning of this film, the police conferees are presented with a gold bar to examine. Based on its apparent size - it seems to be about a foot and a half long by three and a half inches wide and high - it would weigh on the order of 150 pounds. Yet it is passed around the table as if it weighed a tenth that much.
The original Italian language version has completely different music by Piero Piccioni. The Italian version is included on the Region 2 DVD as an alternative language. The American release features music by Burt Bacharach.
