Ekland was cast as the leading lady of the film, as she was a prominent sex symbol of the time and would have already been familiar to US audiences through her work in The Night They Raided Minsky's and Stiletto. Also nice to see Glynn Edwards playing Albert Swift and he is better known for playing Dave in Minder, the landlord of the Winchester - "Hallo Arfur". I definitely saw a lot of influence on QT’s ‘Res Dogs’, and I think I’ve heard him mention it in an interview somewhere.

Andrew Spicer, University of the West of England: The Creative Producer – The Michael Klinger Papers; • Paper Given at the University of Stirling Conference, Archives and Auteurs – Filmmakers and their Archives, 2–4 September 2009. In the late 1960s, a relaxation in film censorship produced an increase in dark, uncompromising films, with many directors pushing the boundaries of acceptability. Few realized what was coming in the next ten years (the economic downs that commingled with the dark, creative ups in motion pictures) till it was all over. That being Bob Hoskins’ Harold Shand role from The Long Good Friday (although people keep telling me to checkout Richard Burton’s character in Villain as they believe it is in the same league as those). Carl Howard's character of the assassin, "J", is only identified by the initial on his ring, in his only film role, and an appropriate mystery surrounds his real identity.

A number (but not all) of the other roads mentioned above are still in situ, though heavily changed from their 1970 appearance. Given that Ted Lewis had not specified where his novel was set, Hodges felt free to relocate the story [36] to a place he was familiar with, considering Grimsby, Lowestoft, Hull and North Shields [2] before deciding on Newcastle upon Tyne. Mike Hodges explained that Howard was an extra in his TV film Rumour, and the director gave him a line to say, but another extra was wrongly credited. Originally announced in 1997, Tarsem Singh and Samuel Bayer were considered to direct the film before Stephen Kay signed on, with David McKenna writing the script.

Not one of them looked as though they were not sick to their stomachs with jealousy of someone or something.Ted Lewis died in 1982 having published seven more novels and written several episodes for the television series Z-Cars. The film was shot in Metrocolor, [4] which was MGM's trade name for films processed at its Eastmancolor laboratory. Ted Lewis was one of the most visionary voices in fiction before he passed away pre-maturely, and his other works, particularly BOLDT, GBH, and PLENDER, are also works of genius in the world of gritty revenge tales.
