Violent City (aka The Family and Città violenta) is 1970 French/Italian crime film co-written and directed by Sergio Sollima, starring Charles Bronson, Telly Savalas, and Jill Ireland. It was initially released in the US as Violent City, which was the translation of the Italian title, Città violenta. The film was then retitled The Family for a second, much wider, release in 1973, to shamelessly capitalize on the success of The Godfather. (See the poster for The Family on the right.) Producers had initially wanted Jon Voight and Sharon Tate for the leads, but Charles Bronson was already under contract, so he and his wife Jill Ireland were brought in. The film was shot on location in New Orleans and St. Thomas in the US Virgin Island, with some studio scenes filmed at Cinecittà Studios in Rome.
