Cast

Notes

  • Roger Corman's directorial debut.
  • The male lead, "Touch" Connors, would go on to greater success after changing his name and working as Mike Connors. He would star in the oft-referenced TV series Mannix.
  • In spite of her "And Introducing" credit, Jil Jarmyn had made several film and television appearances prior to this movie, many of which are credited. Contrary to the speculation of the riffers and the reputation of the "And Introducing" credit, she had a substantial (though unremarkable) screen acting career.
