Did You Know?
The character of Lawrence Woolsey is based directly upon the real Hollywood showman William Castle
. The character is introduced in a recreation of Castle's famous trademark of a silhouette of him in a director's chair with his head turned in profile with his cigar. His name is a reference to Lawrence Woolner, one of the Woolner Brothers whose company, Woolner Brothers Pictures, distributed sci-fi classics like 'Attack of the 50 Foot Woman' (1958). See more
When Lawrence and Gene are walking out of the Hardware store they encounter a handicap curb cut, which of course did not exist in 1962. See more
