Trivia

The dungeon and torture sequence incorporates long shots that are actually footage of Vincent Price lifted from the Pit and the Pendulum (1961). The torture chamber art and set direction was by the same art director, Daniel Haller, and these scenes in this movie evoked his work on these such Edgar Allan Poe adaptations for Roger Corman, which also starred Vincent Price.

Goofs

When Craig and Todd are driving the black 1955 Cadillac Fleetwood 75 limousine to get away, the scene changes to showing them through the drivers' door window but the door vent glass is not of a 1955 Cadillac but from a 1957 or 1958 model. The next interior shot shows the same 1957 or 58 model with a customized dashboard. When showing the drivers driving the 1955 through the windshield, a solid black steering wheel is shown that a Cadillac of these vintages never had. When the 1955 Limo is "blown up" by Dr. Goldfoot, the pieces remaining of the Cadillac are showing a "correct" gray and dark gray steering wheel which is correct for a 1954 or 1955 Cadillac so the Limo was not harmed in making this movie.

Wonderfully stupid fun
11 January 2006 | by estabansmytheSee all my reviews

Dr. Goldfoot has:

1. Vincent Price having a field day hamming it up like John Barrymore on scotch and speed!

2. Harvey Lembeck as Erich Von Zipper in a hilarious 10-second cameo!

3. The titanic teaming of Dobie Gillis and Frankie Avalon!

4. One of the finest "second bananas," the late Jack Mullaney as Price's Mad Scientist henchman, Igor!

5. Tons of young American International babes!

6. The Supremes singing the title song!

7. It's directed by Elvis' #1 Man, Norman Taurog!

8. It's written by the Three Stooges #1 Man, Ellwood Ullman!

WOW!

What have you got: Only the greatest film since "Gone With The Wind," "Citizen Kane" and "The Bicycle Thief"! Okay, perhaps not - but it is a ton of zany low budget screwball fun,'60s American International-style.

I really liked it.
