CastEdit

ProductionEdit

Director Enzo G. Castellari described One Dollar Too Many as "a true slapstick with an abundance of stuntment, exaggerated action and three important actors: John Saxon, who I finally got to meet, Frank Wolff and Antonio Sabato.[4] Castellari specifically noted Saxon stating that both had similar tastes such as a love of art and that they both had "attended the Accademeia delle Belle Arti [Academy of Fine Arts] in Rome" where Castellari got his diploma.[4] Saxon made several Westerns during the 1960s.[5]

Castellari stated that the only issue he had with the film was Agata Flori as the female lead, as she was cast by producer Dario Sabatello, her lover at the time.[4]

ReleaseEdit

One Dollar Too Many was first distributed in 1968.[6][7][2][3] It was distributed by Titanus in Italy.[1]
