Beaumont’s script is pretty witty and the cast doesn’t take things too seriously. There are plenty of laughs (both intentional and unintentional) but the biggest chuckle comes when the astronauts make out with the girls in a spider infested cave. When their fire goes out the captain tells his officer who is busy making out: “Get some more wood!”
But the best line of dialogue is: “This is a civilization without sex?”
“You call that a civilization?”
The spacesuits were leftovers from Forbidden Planet and most of the effects were previously used in World Without End (also directed by Bernds). Bernds had a diverse career directing everything from Three Stooges shorts to juvenile delinquent classics like High School Hellcats.
