Novelization
A paperback novelization of the film by screenwriter B. W. L. Norton (ISBN 9780440112983) was published in 1978. A more serious
edge and less humor was given to the film's story and there are some changes and additions, such as no mention of Spider Mike being
African-American, a definite hatred between Rubber Duck and Wallace, a fight between Rubber Duck and Wallace after Spider Mike is
broken out of jail, Widow Woman getting married (for the fifth time) and a background story given to Melissa.
