Trivia

Fernando di Leo about the screenplay in an interview from 2001:

"Ducio Tessari asked me and Caminito to write a screenplay for him as he was working on another film, but needed the money. The film was Un Treno per Durango. We wrote the screenplay in less than a week. Ducio took it without even reading it, signed it and went directly to get his money. Caminito an I didn't get a penny, but that was the spirit with which we worked in these days."
