    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Due to a tight budget the production didn't have permission to film as some locations so it was done quickly ad hoc. The scene outside the Freemasons Lodge was filmed on Great Queen Street, London and when there was a break in traffic/pedestrians the director would start filming. The same thing happened during the scene at London Underground station.

      • The story of Spaghetti Hoops came about through research for the Peter Richardson directed movie 'The Pope Must Die (UK)/The Pope Must Diet (USA)'

    • NOTES (1)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The story is loosely based on the book God's Banker about Robert Calvi who was a banker at Banco Ambrosiano which collapsed. Calvi was found dead on the Blackfriars Bridge in London in 1982 and his death was ruled murder.
