For some reason, Tom Conway, who was the brother of fellow actor George Sanders, plays a character in this film called – Tom Conway! This was his only appearance for Hammer, although he later narrated the featurette Copenhagen  (1956) for them. In the 1940’s he acted in horror films for RKO producer Val Lewton, such as Cat People (1942), I Walked with a Zombie and The Seventh Victim (both 1943), as well as playing the detective character The Falcon, a part he inherited from his brother, in a series of second features also for RKO. In 1956, he appeared in the Grade-Z American International schlock horror movies, Voodoo Woman and The She-Creature.
