During the scene in which the inventor of the invisibility serum is mentioned, the characters turn to a photograph of Claude Rains, the first and most famous actor to portray "The Invisible Man." All proceeds from the film's April 1951 Los Angeles premiere benefitted the Los Angeles Examiner's Fund for Wounded Veterans of the Korean War. The Invisible Man character appeared in numerous Universal films, including the 1933 picture The Invisible Man (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1931-40) and the 1942 film Invisible Agent (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1941-50).
