"It was done by a group of very religious people who thought if they made a science fiction film, they could raise enough money to do religious movies. Everyone connected to it was so religious: the producers, the director. I remember Steve McQueen drove the producers crazy! He was more of a maverick in those days, real hell on wheels. Every day the filmmakers would go into prayer meetings- they would pray to everything including the makeup brushes! They would always finish by saying, "And save us from Steve McQueen!" They worked us about eighteen hours a day on that picture. I ended up with pneumonia from the scene where we were locked into a freezer.. They gave me two hours off so I could get a shot from a doctor! When we were filming, I always kept moving around so my back was to the camera as much as possible. When it opened, I left the country and hoped it would blow over. Of course, it became a big hit quite by accident..."
