Movie Trivia:
  • Some sequences were originally tinted green on the original release prints.
  • Shot in 11 days.
  • The original green tint of the "lost continent" sequences was not reproduced for television prints of the film (the sequences were shown in black-and-white instead), and it was not until well over 30 years after the film's initial release that the tint was restored for home video in the late 1980s.
  • The opening shot of the Whits Sands Missile Base, and some of the rocket scenes, were lifted from Rocketship X-M (1950), which, like Lost Continent, had also been released by Lippert Pictures.
