Trivia

It is revealed that Quatermass' daughter Paula, who was played by Monica Grey in Quatermass II (1955), married a man named Carlson and had a daughter named Hettie (short for Hester). She and her husband were killed in a car accident on the Autobahn, leaving Hettie in Quatermass' care. On his photographs of her, her name is inconsistently both Hettie Carlson and Hester Quatermas [sic]. See more »

Goofs

Quatermass has curiously mis-spelled his own surname as Quatermas on the back of Hettie's photo. See more »
