The working title of the film was Queen of the Universe. The opening and closing cast credits vary slightly in order. The film is set in the then future time of 1985. A January 1958 Hollywood Reporter news item indicates that Guy Prescott was added to the cast, but his appearance in the final film has not been confirmed. Actress Colleen Drake's name was misspelled in the credits as "Coleen." A January Daily Variety news item included Brandy Bryan in the cast, but her appearance in the final film has not been confirmed. A modern source indicates that although Ben Hecht is credited with the story for Queen of Outer Space, it is likely he had very little, if anything, to do with the production. The same source indicates that the sequence of the spaceship careening out of control is stock footage from the 1956 Allied Artist production World Without End (see below).
