- All-Star Cast: The film stars the relatively unknown (in the west) Yugoslav actor Bekim Fehmiu. However, he surrounded by a veritable who's who of western and character actors: John Huston, Chuck Connors, Richard Crenna, Ricardo Montalbán, Woody Strode, Slim Pickens, Patrick Wayne...
- Billing Displacement: The star of the film is Yugoslav actor Bekim Fehmiu, and he was billed as this on the original posters. However, all recent releases in the English speaking world give top billing to Chuck Connors and Richard Crenna, with poor Bekhim appearing at the end of the cast list (if he appears at all).
