They Saved Hitler's Brain: Terrible Movies #139
You've all heard about this one, right? No? Well, filming began in the early 1960's, and you can tell by the quality film stock, average art direction, and crew-cuts. 20 minutes of additional footage was shot by UCLA film students 8 years later with a different cast, a Volkswagon Beetle and poor film stock and then it was all Scotch-taped together into a huge confusing mess. There are multiple continuity errors, wooden acting, late 1960's mustaches, haphazard editing, and an impenetrable script. The Twist is performed for some reason, sometimes the cast talks in hep-cat lingo, doors don't want to close, and foley crickets don't always get the clue that the action has moved indoors. I would try to explain the plot, but I can't. Let's just say they should have named this film They Saved Hitler's Head And Shoulders In A Large Container And Then Drove It Around In The Backseat Of A 1960's Sedan I Guess, but no one would want to go see that. To add insult to injury, this movie is boring. BORING! I watched it at Google Video, and you can watch it below, but you probably shouldn't.
