  Note: While local Mandarin films were experiencing a local box office slump during a brief period in the early 70s, former Shaw director-cum-production manager Yuan Chiu Feng reportedly announced in a Taipei press conference that 'The Human Goddess' was to be the first Mandarin language feature to be sent over to the United States for the patented single strip 70mm Cinerama formatting to tailor it for local D-150 exhibition at Shaw Brother's own Cinerama equipped Pearl Theatre in Hong Kong. Run Run Shaw urged director Ho Meng Hua to develop a Human Goddess sequel ala Human Goddess Second Volume that was slated to go before cameras with the same principals reprising their roles but the populist but progressive minded journeyman that Ho was, realized he would not be able to resurrect the magic again by merging antiquated out-of-fashion period costume themes ala Three Smiles or his own Cave of the Silken Web with the modern contemporary situation fantasy comedy scenarios ala Bewitched and I Dream of Jeannie made popular on American TV during the 60s. The idea for a sequel was shelved.
