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 »

Goofs

Many "nighttime" scenes obviously shot in bright, shadow-casting daylight (with dubbed cricket sounds on the soundtrack!). See more »

Quotes

Phil Day: What kind of a police chief are you, anyway?
Police Chief Alaniz: I'm a very good police chief. I always obey orders... most of the time.

not as bad as they say
23 January 2009 | by johnc2141See all my reviews

I watched both the madmen of mandoras and they saved Hitlers brain with the 70's edits,and i thought it was quite entertaining.not as bad as they say.but its no masterpiece but it is better made then the other bad films;plan 9 from outer space and robot monster.i never knew this was from crown international pictures,which made quality low budget pictures like American international did in the 50's,60's and 70's.with the morbid plot of Hitlers head in a jar still living.madmen of mandoras is a creepy movie full of red herrings,Nazis and secret agents in mandoras south America.i always wanted to see this and they saved Hitlers brain and finally seen it,and ill have to say i enjoyed it.madmen of mandoras has a longer scene at the end of the movie.not giving away spoilers thank you.but saying madmen of mandoras is a bad film would be an injustice.as a b-movie its pretty enjoyable,make some popcorn throw a party and entertain your guests with madmen of mandoras.look for actor nester paiva as a policeman,nester paiva has been in many monster movies including;creature from the black lagoon,mole people and 20 million miles to earth.madmen of mandoras is available on a DVD set called drive in classics(all from crown international)also included on this DVD is;the creeping terror,they saved Hitlers brain,the devils hand,land of the Minotaur and a few more mini classics,all recently restored.5 out of 10 check it out. and beware of Mr h.
