In Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time Hollywood" you can see a poster of this movie. Another movie that you see both mentioned as well as on posters and marquees in that movie is Three in the Attic. But wait, before you head off.. there is more that connects director Antonio Isasi-Isasmendi to Tarantino: his Eurocrime action flick Summertime Killer will sound familiar to Tarantino fans' ears: its soundtrack appeared on "Kill Bill"
