The original UK theatrical release was cut for an 'A' rating in 1969 (the equivalent of today's 'PG' rating). The cuts were made to kidney blows and a man's head being bashed against a rock during the final fight scene. Subsequent released were uncut and rated '15'. See more »
Its got everything! Two fisted action! Gorgeous females! Catfights! Gregory Peck! Camilla Sparve! a Whos Who of yesterdays character actors! Hokey dialog! Excellent Special Effects! Great scenery! Ultra-Panavision! Directed by the guy who did Bridge Over River Kwai! ah well, according to several sources this movie was supposed to be over 3 hours long, and was going to come out as a Cinerama-type Road Show...but the days of that were dying and Columbia got cold feet, so it was cut to a little over 2 hours; There are some minor differences between 35 and 70mm prints; This movie is a hoot-see it!
