Trivia

There's a scene in Mandoras where a small airplane circles and then lands in order to drop off an Army general. The tail number (registration number) is visible in one of the scenes (N4328C). Upon researching it, that airplane, a 1955 Aeronca Champ 7EC, is still flying as of 5/13 and is based in Modesto, CA. However, as of 5/13, it's for sale. See more »

"Mach Schnell, Dumbkaupfs!!" Before there Was Manos, there was this... :=8P
11 December 1999 | by (Mooport Moos, VA) – See all my reviews

Well, they saved enough to make a wax head in a pickle jar shout out "Hogan's Hero's"-styled German to a bunch of scurrying lab assistants. Of the many, many, MANY bad films released during the 60's, few can rival the amazingly boring and incowherent non-energy of "They Saved Hitler's Brain". Huge, indigestible chunks of film debris from other films are awash in this film, like so much flotsum. Legend has it that at least 2 moovies were ground together to make up this one film, but there may be more - and the MooCow is here to tell you that they only ground together the moore boring and irrelevant scenes. Seriously, this is a film were virtually nothing happens. Except for scenes showing the grimacing "Mr. H.", this wad of celluloid is completely worthless. The MooCow's favorite scene: idiot #1 and his girlfrend are driving idiot #2 around for no reason; a car drives by, shoots idiot #2 dead, and drives off; idiot #1 looks at the dead idiot #2 and says "what happened?"; idiot #1's girlfriend says "I think he's been shot". Guess the car that blared by, with blazing guns, didn't quite register. Since the film is virtually plotless, the MooCow cannot provide you with even a cursory explaination as to what;s going on, excet that in the end the wax Hitler head gets melted, and the world is saved. This moovie is moore an endurance test than a film; schlock-fans, remember those boring 15 minutes of soybean fields at the beginning of "Manos: the Hands of Fate"? Well, imagine an entire moovie made up of that. We're not kidding! :€ No one in this film is worth mentioning, except the hideously poor direction was provided by David Bradley, the "genius" behind "Twelve to the Moon". The MooCow says avoid this film like a pre-frontal lobotomy, for serious film masochists only!! :=8P
