McGuane directed the film and wrote the script. He was married to one of the film's female stars and had a scandalous affair with the other, as detailed in the autobiography Actress authored by Elizabeth Ashley.
Although the film was a box-office failure, a January 22, 1976 New York Times review described it as "a more satisfying picture" than Rancho Deluxe, another 1975 film written by McGuane. He would later write The Missouri Breaks, which co-starred Jack Nicholson and Marlon Brando.
