Trivia The Breen Office ordered two cuts from the original script. First, the victims were supposed to be young girls. That was ordered to be changed to young women although Dr. Simnell's bizarre doll fetish may be a leftover from the initial concept. In addition, during the scene in the Mesmer Club, Watson was supposed to take off his pants, not just roll up his pant leg. See more »
