Following the release of The Godfather, films about the mafia in Italy were struggling with their earlier commercial appeal basically having vanished.[5] This led to later day films, such as Rudeness being overtly focused on sex.[5]

Rudeness was shot at Incir-de Paolis Studios in Rome and on location in Palermo and Paris.[1] Most of the film was shot in studios and included a lot of stock footage of streets and airports.[5]


Rudeness was distributed theatrically by Film Audax in Italy on May 11, 1975 with a 105 minute running time.[1]
