- Prudence Hyman was nearly decapitated for real. She was supposed to duck when Sir Christopher Lee swung the sword, but forgot to do so at the critical moment. The Assistant Director pushed her aside just in time. The scene was then redone with a dummy.
- Sir 克里斯托弗·李 is quoted in 'The Films of Christopher Lee': "Beautiful-looking picture, but the whole thing fell apart because the effect of the snakes on Megaera's head was not sufficiently well done for the climax of the film. Not a memorable film, but it could have been terrific."

Her idea was rejected by Keys due to budget and time considerations. When Keys saw the abysmal Gorgon effects in the finished movie, he told Shelley that he should have listened to her suggestion. As Sir 克里斯托弗·李 quips, "The only thing wrong with "The Gorgon" is The Gorgon!"
