Random Trivia For This Title:

  • [?] Dan Pastorini's bare chest scene with Karen Black foreshadowed his appearance in the December 1980 issue of [Playgirl].
  • James Franciscus' death, holding onto the diamonds instead of swimming for freedom, is what's called a Monkey Grip: When a monkey reaches into a cage and grabs food, it will not let go when hunters come after it, and is trapped as its fist holding the food is too big to get out through the bars.
