Movie Trivia:
  • Although most of Akira Ifukube's score is replaced in the American version, if you listen closely enough you can her a version of what would become the familiar "March of the Monsters" theme from many of the mid-sixties Godzilla films.
  • This was originally supposed to be a co-production between A.B.C. and Toho. However, A.B.C. backed out just before production began.
