This film gained some infamy at the time of its release because of the death of one of its stuntmen. He was killed on camera while working with what was supposed to be a sedated shark when a white shark bit through the protective netting and attacked him. When the production company used the death to help promote the film, director Samuel Fuller
, who had been clashing with the producers on a wide variety of issues relating to the film, quit the production. When he finally saw the version that was released to theaters, he said they had butchered it so badly while editing it that it was no longer recognizable as his film and demanded that his name be taken off of it, but the producers refused.
