  1. One of the censored scenes involved Pretorius’ menagerie of homonculi. You will notice that there’s an extra jar whose occupant was not shown. This was because the censors thought it was too perverse. What it was a “baby” played by Billy Barty in full Karloff monster make-up sitting in a high-chair. Apparently, it was thought to be simply too repulsive to be shown at the time.
