Reported to be the highest-grossing film of the "Creature" trilogy.
Director Jack Arnold liked to use the sides of the movie screen as the arches in a proscenium-style theater with unexpected intrusions coming in from the sidelines. This technique can be seen here when 'John Agar (I)' goes out into the darkened area around the motel to look for Lori Nelson's missing dog. A hand suddenly reaches out from the right side of the screen to touch him, giving him (and the audience) a start, but it's not the dreaded Gill Man. It's simply Lori Nelson.
Stuntman Tom Hennesy almost drowned during filming. Playing the creature, he grabs Helen Dobson (actually stuntwoman Ginger Stanley) on a pier and jumps with her into the water. The scene was shot at night, and when Hennesy and Stanley hit the water, they discovered it was full of jellyfish; in addition, a freak current started to pull them both down. Hennesy let go of Stanley, who swam to the surface, because his Gill-Man costume had become waterlogged and was too heavy for him to fight the current that was pulling them down. He was rescued by two local boys who happened to be watching the filming from a nearby boat, and quickly raced over and pulled him in.
For this film, Ricou Browning wore a creature head intended for John Wayan, who had originally been hired to play the creature in this sequel. The creature suit had to be cut down to fit Browning.
