Preposterous Quasi-Sci-Fi Melodrama
30 January 2020 | by jfrentzen-942-204211See all my reviews

In this ludicrous, marginally science fiction drama a dying district attorney's brain is transplanted into an African-American (Raymond St. Jacques) whose brain has been damaged, and how he adjusts to his new body and also tries to win a big case in the process. The predictable happens: neither the whites nor the blacks will accept him, including his white wife and his black mistress. The political murder trial that resolves the D.A.'s personal dilemma hardly resolves the movie's dramatic premise, in which the viewer is expected to accept the reality of a brain transplant. Brain transplant? Despite sincere acting by St. Jacques and Susan Oliver as the wife, the movie does not promote racial harmony, further the understanding of medical progress, or entertain.
