  • Uschi Digard's lines are in Swedish.
  • This is the first appearance of actor Charles Napier' in a 'Russ Meyer' film. He ultimately appeared in three other films for Russ Meyer: Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (1970) and The Seven Minutes (1971) (in which he kept his clothes on) and Supervixens (1975) (in which his frontal nudity was simulated with a huge rubber phallus).
  • According to some reports, the film's nearly incomprehensible storyline was the result of a photo lab mishap that ruined much of the original footage - a situation that director 'Russ Meyer' tried to rectify by shooting inserts of a nude woman frolicking in the desert that were inserted in the many plot holes to pad the running time. Later in his career, when the movie's bizarre surrealism was met with critical praise, Meyer denied that story, possibly to save face and give the impression that the fragmented plot was intentional.
