Crazy Credits

Antoine Saint-John is credited as 'Dominigo Antoine' on Italian prints, while English prints refer to him as 'Jean Michel Antoine'. 'Vivienne Maya' and David Warbeck are not credited for playing John's girlfriend and Nolan respectively on Italian prints, but are credited on English prints in that order.

Alternate Versions

The Italian version of the film, which has been screened at London's National Film Theatre, runs about 157m - the difference is that the climatic flashback scene runs about 3 minutes longer (only 30s in other prints or missing entirely) and shows Coburn getting jealous at the attention Warbeck is giving his girlfriend - thus giving a whole additional meaning to the betrayal sub-plot.
