  • Adventures of the Queen was one of three pilot shows produced by Irwin Allen as part of a three pilot episode deal with Twentieth Century Fox (the others being The Time Travellers and The Swiss Family Robinson).
  • This story was filmed aboard the Queen Mary luxury liner which is permanently moored at Long Beach in California (The Poseidon Adventure and the Memory of Eva Ryker were also filmed onboard The Queen Mary).
  • First aired in the US on Friday 14th February 1975.
  • The tannoy voice at 21:50 sounds very much like Irwin Allen calling Dr. Brooks (David Hedison) to the dispensary. Also at 37:18.
  • Gloria Stuart (female passenger) set sail again in 1997 in the James Cameron version of Titanic, playing the older Rose.
  • This is the most substantial role for Elizabeth Rogers in an Irwin Allen production, playing Irene McKay.
