Audience Reviews for The Madmen of Mandoras (Amazing Mr. H )
The original version of They Saved Hitler's Brain, entitled The Madmen of Mandoras, isn't much better than its re-edited counterpart. The added scenes certainly didn't help the re-edit of the film... it was just bad to begin with. There are no recognizable actors (to me anyways) and the story is pretty humdrum. However bad it may be, it does have some unintentional comedic value. The scene where one of the rebels tells of Hitler's experiments is particularly bad. Watching an actor waiting for his next cue to deliver dialogue is a hoot to see. This actually came in a set with the re-edit, and since I haven't watched They Saved Hitler's Brain in a while, I may watch it again soon for a proper comparison between the two versions. Overall, it's not at all good, but it does have some funny things about it that makes it worth at least one watch.
This was really weird. I couldn't get into it and I wouldn't watch it again.
Read an article recently and found out that Bill Freed who plays Hitler in this forgotten film just died so had to see this film again. And its about what I remembered, not really a good story, or good effects, but for some reason I like it. Bill Freed really hams it up in the pre Hitler head parts and once he is just a head (ala The Brain that Wouldnt Die) his facial expressions are priceless. Other then that this film does not have a lot going for it, the plot is pointless at best seems that Hitler lived by having his head removed and escaping to a small tropical island. His followers then work on getting a gas ready that will kill almost the entire world but when they found out that an American has a antidote then they kidnap him to get it from him and to I presume keep it from everybody else... and after that it gets even sillier. So sit back and dont try to make sense of it and appreciate the only role of Bill Freed RIP.
