The film's title refers to the nickname of gangster Charles Luciano aka Salvatore Lucania ('Gian Maria Volonte').

Along with a cast of actors, real-life former US Federal narcotics bureau agent investigator Charles Siragusa portrayed himself in the film. Siragusa did not play himself as the younger version of him reflecting the real life events in which he had partaken as a younger man but at the more seasoned age that he was in real life when the film was shot. The picture was Siragusa's only ever cinema movie role and he also acted as a technical consultant to the production.
