Goofs:
Audio/visual unsynchronized: The instruments heard in the rock 'n' roll song being played when the characters arrive at Las Dos Palabras do not match the instruments used by the actors. This is most apparent when Suzanne stops dancing; the actor to her left is playing a trumpet, but no trumpet can be heard in the song.See more »

Well the first half has some excellent editing..., 19 June 2001
Author: Rich Meyer (muzik@ptd.net) from Saint Clair, Pennsylvania

I assume everyone knows that They Saved Hitler's Brain is basically two bad movies crushed together as one. The first 20-30 minutes were produced in the mid-sixties, and the rest was produced in the late fifties...a fact that really comes through in the production values.

I actually prefer the first half of the movie, and do have at least one good thing to say about this film...the editing in in the first half is excellent. The chase and crash footage from Thunder Road is edited in rather seemlessly...if I hadn't seen Thunder Road first, I would have never recognized it or realized it was stock footage.

Of course, all the characters introduced in the first ten minutes are dead by the halfway point, and the fifties-half of the movie begins, which actually takes you down to South America (or at least San Diego) to meet Mr. H, his goons, and his inane plan for immortality. We go from bad but moderately interesting sixties film to bad and boring fifties sci-fi/nazi movie.
