  1. I still like the folklore surrounding the end of X THE MAN WITH THE X RAY EYES. Some have claimed the last line (edited out) was –after Dr Xavier gouges his eyes out–was “My God, I can still see.”

    More than likely, this was excellent hindsight.

  2. “Stephen King, in his book Danse Macabre, claims there were rumors that the ending originally went further with Milland crying out “I can still see” after removing his eyes. Corman has denied the existence of that ending but expressed enjoyment of the idea saying “Now it’s interesting, Stephen King saw the picture and wrote a different ending, and I thought, ‘His ending is better than mine.'” Wikipedia
