Facts about

Van Heflin was considered for the role of Quatermass.
Of the three Hammer Horror "Quatermass" films, this is the only one which "Quatermass" creator Nigel Kneale personally liked. This was largely to the fact that he was much happier with Andrew Keir's performance as the title character than he had been with Brian Donlevy's in The Quatermass Xperiment and Quatermass II: Enemy from Space. He described Donlevy as "a former Hollywood heavy gone to seed" and claimed that he was drunk during much of the shooting of the latter film, a claim which its director Val Guest repudiated.
Andrew Keir celebrated his 41st birthday on set on April 3rd 1967.
