Kevin Connor, director of the last Amicus omnibus (From Beyond the Grave), was brought in to helm this in between his two other fantasy films with leading man Doug McClure, The Land That Time Forgot and The People That Time Forget, with a script by Amicus co-founder Milton Subotsky adapted from a novel by Tarzan scribe Edgar Rice Burroughs.
Connor keeps the action flying fast and furious even when it gets completely ridiculous (that frog!), and it's given a nice aural sheen by music composer Mike Vickers, a library music vet who previously worked on Dracula A.D. 1972 and a lot of softcore quickies.
