- Bill Lane: You're as bad as she is! Oh, women! Mary Dennison: Men! Every time you search for an answer, you always come up with women. You're not getting out of this one so easily. I'd like to know why you think Zinthrop really hasn't got something. Bill Lane: Well, you can call it male intuition if you like... except there's something about this whole business that doesn't smell right... a private laboratory! A secret experiment! Zinthrop himself! The only thing missing is a genie with a lamp!
- This was Susan Cabot's final movie.
The role of the Beekeeper played by Aron Kincaid was added after the film's initial release.
SPOILER: In one of the final scenes, a bottle of acid is thrown at Susan Cabot; her reaction of throwing her hands up when it strikes her is not acting, however - someone had filled the 'breakaway' bottle with water and it was so heavy that when it struck her she said "I thought my teeth had been knocked through my nose!". The fake smoke used to simulate the acid also choked her; after falling through the window, unable to breathe, she tore the makeup off along with skin, leaving a huge purple mark on her neck.
