Eccentric billionaire Howard Hughes backed the film financially. He paid to ship 60 tons of soil to Hollywood for retakes, unaware it was radioactive. He later paid $12 million for every existing copy because of guilt after many cast and crew were diagnosed with cancer. He kept a tight hold on the film, not even allowing it to be shown on television, for years. Universal bought the rights to the film in 1979, and according to "The Hollywood Reporter", it hadn't been seen by the public for 21 years prior to the purchase (allegedly, Paramount obtained reissue rights in 1974). Hughes reportedly called the choice of the film's shooting location the worst mistake of his life.
