Seven on Seven Notes

General Film Info / Trivia

  • Seven was released in the United States on September 21, 1979, where it premiered in Los Angeles.
  • The only film not actually owned by Writer/Director/Producer Andy Sidaris himself because it was produced by Melvin Simon Productions and released by American International Pictures.
  • There is no credited composer on the film. Writer/Director Andy Sidaris may have possibly used music from ABC's Wide World of Sports vast music library to score the film since Sidaris worked on that show for more than a decade. Even the music tracks aren't credited to specific composers during the end credits.
  • Prior to Directing this film, Andy Sidaris was a Director for ABC Sports starting in the late 60's winning 7 Emmy's for his work during the Olympics in 1968 and 1976. He used the experiences directing on that show for this film because of the style and look of it.
  • There are two versions of this film. One version that was available on the MGM digital cable channel which only runs 90 Minutes and missing eleven minutes. The uncut version which was just released by Kino Lorber is the complete uncut version that restores alot of scenes including Ed Parker killing both of Mr. Lee's henchmen, and a scene revealing that The Cowboy was still alive after Mailei double crossed him and shot him amongst the few scenes that were restored from the cut version.
