4.0 out of 5 stars They should have let Mr. H rest in peace., Feb. 11 2003
This review is from: They Saved Hitler's Brain (DVD)
This release contains the 1963 film "Madmen of Mandoras", but at the beginning there is some additional footage that seems to have been filmed around 1973. (Note the Volkswagen Beetle has large circular tail-lights, which first appeared on the 1973 models.) This extra footage was possibly a project of some UCLA film students, to create a longer movie for television.
It is unfortunate that these more recent actors are not in the film credits, since the newer footage is more fun to watch than the original, except for one thing: the head of the Fuhrer. Hitler's head provides the much needed comic relief for the drab situations, mostly by showing some kinds of unrecognizable expressions, and yelling "Mach Schnell!" (colloq: buck up). But, we are also shown the "evil" of the man (I mean, the head) when he smiles broadly after one of his cohorts shoots someone. Yahoooooo!
