Trivia

One trademark of Joe Don Baker's; oranges - particularly peeling them. In Mitchell (1975), he hands (or more correctly, drops into) the butler (Merlin Olsen's) hand, a peeled-in-one-part orange peel, and in Final Justice (1985), he 'threatens' a bartender by describing, and demonstrating his ability at peeling 'just the peel' (again, in a single piece), of an orange (implying hell so the same thing to him).

Texas cop vs. Italian mobs in Malta
24 April 1999 | by Serpent-5See all my reviews

It's amusing to see that Hollywood later borrowed ideas from this film, and used it in BLACK RAIN many years later. Joe Don Baker plays a texas cop ordered to take a prisoner (venantini) back to Italy. But he escapes. Lots of action and exploitation sequences as Venantini goes crazy of some female victims. Rosanno Brazzi has a thankless role as a bad guy, and Venantini is really great as a villain. This was the last of the Greydon Clark/Baker production. The film even has a catchy end credit song. The video print is dark, and the DVD is also dark and scratchy, but I remember the old HBO print was excellent.
