The Brain That Wouldn't Die (1962) Brilliant but borderline psychotic surgeon does secretive, experimental work with limb transplants and tissue rejection drugs, much to the chagrin of his surgeon-father. When he crashes his car and his fiancee is decapitated, his research - far from complete - is put to the test. His focus then becomes finding an appropriate donor body to make his fiancee whole, while the current and failed experiments in his basement laboratory grow restless.

  • Jan Compton: Nothing you can be is more terrible than what I am.
  • Kurt: You're nothing but a freak of life! And, a freak of death!
  • Jan Compton: And what else has happened to it? Kurt: What do you mean, *what else*? Well, it's... It's mutated some, of course. It's changed considerably.
  • Dr. Bill Cortner: Oh, come on now, Doris. Do I look like a maniac who goes around killing girls?
Movie Trivia:

  • This film has never been officially released in the UK. It was rejected by the BBFC in 1961 and has never been submitted for a re-rating.
  • Filmed in 1959 but, due to various legal and censorship problems, not released until 1962.
  • The last title shot reads "The Head That Wouldn't Die".
  • One of the men snapping photos of Doris in her studio is Jerry Lewis imitator Sammy Petrillo, who co-starred in Bela Lugosi Meets a Brooklyn Gorilla (1952).
