Movie Trivia:
  • The film was originally begun by Herbert Tevos as "Lost Women of Zarpa", but a variety of factors - funds running out and neither the producers nor the cast being able to get along with Tevos - resulted in the production being shut down and then abandoned. A few years later Ron Ormond bought the film, shot some new footage and released it as "Mesa of Lost Women".
  • Just before Dr. Leland Masterson (Harmon Stevens) shoots the frenzied dancer, Tarantella (Tandra Quinn), in the cantina he quotes a passage from the Bible, (II Kings 9:33), "...So they threw her down, and some of her blood splattered on the wall and on the horses; and he trampled her underfoot..." describing the violent death of Queen Jezebel.
  • Hoyt Curtin's original music score - consisting solely of guitar and piano - was recycled by director Edward D. Wood Jr. for his film Jail Bait (1954).
  • The name "Tarantella" for the dancer played by Tandra Quinn is an in-joke. "Tarantella" is both the Italian word for "tarantula" and the name of an Italian dance that is supposed to make the person doing it look like he or she has just been bitten by a tarantula.
