's; oranges - particularly peeling them. In Mitchell
(1975), he hands (or more correctly, drops into) the butler (Merlin Olsen
's) hand, a peeled-in-one-part orange peel, and in Final Justice
(1985), he 'threatens' a bartender by describing, and demonstrating his ability at peeling 'just the peel' (again, in a single piece), of an orange (implying hell so the same thing to him). See more

The most often seen version of this movie is the version as featured on _"Mystery Science Theater 3000 (1988)"_ in 1993. This version was derived from a 1980s Lorimar TV print, which was then edited further by the MST3k producers (so they could wrap the host segments of the show around it). Because of this, several fairly important plot details in the original film are lost (making it seem more confusing than it actually is). See more
