The title, They Saved Hitler’s Brain, catches the eye like a sign outside a freakshow. The film creaks along. It’s all just spies and scientists and secret gasses and whispers of Nazi’s who have pickled Adolf’s head. Then in the final minutes, to much disappointment, the attraction that first caught your interest is revealed.
There’s not much to this one, just basic hucksterism, the allure of Nazi’s and perplexing question – “Why is it that dis-embodied heads in films gain telepathic powers?”
or for a better film about Nazi’s in hiding see The Boys From Brazil.
