When it was decided to have him appear in the audience as himself during the second show they could not find a wig that looked like his natural hair so they took a woman's wig and cut and styled it enough to get by for the few seconds he would be on screen.
Tony Randall related on a 1963 episode of Password All-Stars that his next film was called "The Circus of Dr. Lau," changed at some point before release to its eventual title.
Before it became apparent the film was not a hit, George Pal told press he was planning a sequel with Tony Randall recreating his role.
