Facts about

The devil costume that Anton LaVey was falsely rumored to have worn in the impregnation scene was later re-used in the film Asylum of Satan. A small woman had difficulty fitting into the tiny suit.

Along with several other insignificant scenes, this was deleted to reduce the film's running time.
