Rolling Thunder/Fun Facts
From The Grindhouse Cinema Database
- Quentin Tarantino named his DVD distribution company Rolling Thunder Pictures after this film. RTP was a short-lived company that re-released classic exploitation and cult films in theaters and on home video. Sadly, it was shut down for financial reasons only few years after it was established.
- The film was originally produced and scheduled for release by 20th Century Fox; it was prominently featured in their 1977 exhibitors' guide. However, the studio brass were greatly disturbed by the violence in the finished film, and the decision was made to sell it off to American International Pictures.
