They Saved Hitlers Brain (1968)
Directed by: David Bradley
Starring: Steve Bennett, Audrey Caire, Carlos Rivas
- The most incredible plot to conquer the world!
Nazi madmen preserve Hitler's brain on a small tropical island until the time is right to resurrect him and, along with him, the Third Reich. This movie was shot in two different time periods so great, you can see how the styles change. The first half was shot in 1961 and the second in 1968, making it a big ass 7 year old gap between the two sequences. This is a super funny movie. All I can say, hold on... hold on at least until you see Hitler. Notice how the germans speak English in this film... Haha... very funny scenes.
I give this film 5.5/10 pukes
- Numerous early scenes switch from day to night, especially during car chases.
- Only Hitler's head is shown to be removed, yet while he is attached to the machine his shoulders are often visible.
- When Phil and Kathy put the dead man's body in the phone booth, the body is leaning so that his shoulders are resting on the far side of the booth. When a woman opens the phone booth's door a minute later, the body falls out as if its shoulders were propped up against the door.
- Hitler's "German" dialogue in the flashback is gibberish.
- The first time Hitler's disembodied head is revealed to the Days in South America, it is beneath a large left-handed swastika (arms pointing anti-clockwise). The correct Nazi insignia (used elsewhere in the film) is the right-handed swastika.
"They Saved Hitler's Brain", despite bearing a 1963 copyright, was released years later. The 1963 film The Madmen of Mandoras was combined with new footage of "CID" agents Vic and Toni shot for the film and released to television as "They Saved Hitler's Brain". The Vic and Toni footage was clearly shot years later; the hairstyles and fashions did not become popular until the late 1960s.
