The following written prologue appears before the onscreen credits: "To the Department of Defense and to Departments of the United States Army, Navy and Air Force, without whose cooperation this film could not have been made, the producers of The Lost Missile extend their appreciation." Some reviews mistakenly list film editor Everett Sutherland as "Edward" Sutherland. According to a review, portions of the film were shot on location in New York City and Canada. The Lost Missile was the last released film directed by William Berke, who died in February 1958.
