Production

Joe Losey said he was handed a ready-made script. "It was a concoction of all the prison films Hollywood ever made," he said. "Both Stanley Baker and I refused to work until they let us write our own script. Which is what we did." He says the producers wanted a sequence where the criminals rob a race track but he felt that had been done in The Killing (1956) so he filmed it taking place off screen.

Reception

According to Losey the film was a commercial success. He said the film was banned in Ireland because so many of the prisoners were Irish catholics.

The film was reportedly very successful in Paris.
