As with the TV series, the English language movie consisted of Erich Thompson completely re-writing the original French version (which was released in 1970).

Scala Cinema in London got into legal hot water for using this movie as a 'cover' for screenings of 'A Clockwork Orange', which was banned in the UK by Stanley Kubrick until his death.
