- THE ADVENTURE YOU WILL NEVER FORGET!
- Journey to a savage world where time is extinct!
- [Over the speaker to the crew] Captain Von Schoenvorts: This U-Boat is now under the control of our enemy, Mr. Tyler. You will obey his commands... for the time being.
Lisa Clayton: You know, I'm a biologist, Captain. I study the structure of living things, their motivations and their behavior. But I don't understand you. How can anyone who is so interested in life follow a profession which is devoted to destruction and killing? Captain Von Schoenvorts: The study of nature, Miss Clayton, has taught me that life is founded upon killing and destruction. The sea swarms with living things that prey on one another to survive. Lisa Clayton: But human beings needn't. The ship you torpedoed contained nothing but innocent passengers! Women and children! Captain Von Schoenvorts: And a hold full of arms and ammunition that would be used to kill women and children in my country. Oh, yes. How else would it have exploded so quickly?
Bradley: Caprona has damn little respect for guns, Mr. Tyler. Captain Von Schoenvorts: No, there's nothing wrong with our shooting, gentlemen. In primitive nervous systems like this allosaurus, even a fatal wound might register in the brain with a delayed action. As your saying would have it, this "chap" was late for his own funeral.
Whiteley: You know it could be more difficult to leave Caprona than it was to land. We'll have that current with us going out through the tunnel. Be very difficult to navigate. Dietz: Captain Von Schoenvorts will take us through. I was with him when he took our U-33 down the Norwegian coast in winter, to sink a British cruiser. Storms and ice floes did not stop him. Olson: He's not very good against lifeboats, though, is he?
- German actor Anton Diffring dubbed John McEnery's voice as Captain Von Schoenvorts, allegedly because the producers felt McEnery had used a silly voice for the part.
Doug McClure replaced Stuart Whitman.
Bradley was offered to Patrick Mower.
The real U-33 of World War One served in the Mediterranean and survived the war.
Michael Moorcock has said his original script was faithful to the book. But the last 20 minutes were changed by the producers to include the volcano and caveman attacks on the Tyler's men and destruction of the submarine.
