Naturally, Ed wrote Vorloff with the ability to hypnotize women, just like Lugosi did as Count Dracula.
Vornoff also summons a hypnotized Janet by clasping his hands together, just as in White Zombie.
Beam Me Up, Scotty!: Due to The Golden Turkey Awards, where most people first heard of Ed Wood, many believe that at one point that Dr. Vornoff declares that Lobo is a "gentle as a kitchen", when he clearly does say "gentle as a kitten"
Executive Meddling: Donald E. McCoy, who financed the film and served as executive producer, insisted on the anti-nuclear message that is featured in the film. Some claim that he also insisted on his son Tony being the leading man, though others have said that Tony had already been cast, and introduced Wood to his father when Loretta King proved unable to finance the film.
That's Dolores Fuller's version. Loretta King's is that Wood hired her flat out after seeing her in a play, and that Fuller was much less professional about the whole thing... (Of course, King's word is less than believable when considering she wasn't honest about other things - like being able to back the film.)
Parody Retcon: The film has a generally less serious atmosphere (and dialogue, in particular) than most of Wood's other output. This has led to suspicions that Wood's co-writer, Alex Gordon, originally wrote the film as a parody of mad science flicks, but Wood directed it as if the plot were being played straight.
