Max Julien, author of the source story for, and a co-producer of, the film's predecessor, Cleopatra Jones, refused to participate in the production, and instead got token credit for the story and script having been "based on characters created by" him.

The film was not as well received as its predecessor, Cleopatra Jones, due mainly to the decline in the popularity of the blaxploitation genre.
