Peppard made the film with much of his own money. He later stated that it cost $1 million to produce, and he eventually sold it for $1,250,000, thus allowing him to repay his investors within nine months of the film's release.[1]

Bill Conti's love theme Come With Me Now was the inspiration to the theme tune to Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, hosted by the late Robin Leach. It had also been used as one of the theme songs for local morning program AM Los Angeles on KABC-TV.



A man escapes from a Louisiana prison to be at the California hospital bedside of his ailing son.
