Jacobs, directed by Richard Cunha, that stars Ed Kemmer, Sally Fraser, and Buddy Baer. The film was theatrically released by Astor Pictures in March, 1958 as a double feature with She Demons.
The make-up effects were created by Jack Pierce, known for his Universal Pictures‘ classic monster makeup for Boris Karloff‘s Frankenstein (1931), The Mummy (1932), and Lon Chaney Jr.‘s The Wolf Man (1941). Baer, who played Vargas the Giant in this film, also played a giant in Jack and the Beanstalk (1952), starring Bud Abbott and Lou Costello. The film was shot in the San Bernardino National Forest.
