  • In order to get the lizards to move, heaters had to be turned on full blast because reptiles don't move in cold weather.
  • When the film was released in Britain, it was heavily edited due to their strict laws against animal cruelty.
  • Originally, D.W. Griffith was supposed to direct the film. However, he quit in the middle of filming so Hal Roach and his son completed the project.
