Trivia: Jail Bait

For the film:

  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The blackface scene comes out of nowhere, was filmed probably ten years beforehand by an entirely different crew, and adds nothing to the plot.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!:
    • Timothy Farrell, who plays Vic Brady, had played gangster Umberto Scalli in three loosely-connected films: The Devil's Sleep (1949), Racket Girls (1951), and Dance Hall Racket (1953). Acting was a part time job for him. His day job was serving as a bailiff for the Los Angeles Marshal's Department. He eventually rose through the ranks and served as County Marshal from 1971 to 1975.
    • Dolores Fuller, who plays Marilyn Gregor, had started her career as a child actor with a small role in It Happened One Night (1934). She had larger roles in Glen or Glenda? (1953) and Mesa of Lost Women (1953).
    • Mona McKinnon, who played Miss Willis, is better known for playing Paula Trent, the female lead in Plan 9 from Outer Space.
    • Bud Osborne, who played Paul McKenna, was a 40-years veteran of Film Westerns.
    • Herbert Rawlinson, who plays Dr. Boris Gregor, had a lengthy career, starting from 1910s Silent Films and lasting to his death. This was his final role, dying from lung cancer before the release of the film.
    • Steve Reeves, who plays Lt. Bob Lawrence, went on to star in the film Hercules (1958) and its sequel Hercules Unchained (1959).
    • Lyle Talbot, who plays Inspector Johns, portrayed Lex Luthor in Atom Man vs. Superman (1950).
    • Theodora Thurman, who plays Loretta, was a fashion model. She is better known as "Miss Monitor", the sexy Weather Report girl for the NBC Radio program from 1955 to 1961. She reportedly "became the most recognizable female voice in the country" by turning on viewers by voice alone.
  • What Could Have Been: The role of Dr. Boris Gregor was reportedly written for Bela Lugosi.
