The film was largely marketed by the casting together of Gabin, Delon and Ventura, all major film stars of the time. Henri Verneuil had previously directed Gabin and Delon in another thriller Mélodie en sous-sol. They would also star together in Deux hommes dans la ville and Delon would dedicate Ne réveillez pas un flic qui dort to Gabin.
