This filmed-in-Great Britain movie technically marked Lee Marvin''s first TV movie -- technically, since the first one he did, "The Killers" (with Ronald Reagan) in 1964, was at the time deemed too violent for TV and was released theatrically instead. It also marked his sixth time teaming on film with Ernest Borgnine.

Their plan is to exchange the prisoners for guns and ammunition from arms merchant Gene Evans so that they can continue to fight against the Union. Much of the same cast and crew worked previously on the two-part adaptation of L''Amour''s "The Sacketts" (1979).
