''They Saved Hitler's Brain'' is a 1968 science fiction film. It is about [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin exactly what you think it is]]: Nazi war criminals preserve UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler's brain on a small tropical island until the time is right to resurrect him and, along with him, the Third Reich.
The film was adapted for television from a shorter 1963 movie called ''Madmen of Mandoras'', and lengthened by about 20 minutes with additional footage shot by UCLA students at the request of the distributor.
!!Tropes appearing in this film:
* ArgentinaIsNaziland: The Nazis are plotting in the [[BananaRepublic fictional country]] Mandoras.
* ArtisticLicenseHistory: That's not how Hitler died.[[note]]Specifically, in RealLife he [[DrivenToSuicide took a cyanide capsule and then shot himself in the head]], and was then cremated on a gas-fueled funeral pyre, [[CaptainObvious pretty much precluding any chance of saving his brain]].[[/note]]
* BananaRepublic: Mandoras is a ficticious Latin American country from where the Nazis operate.
* BrainInAJar: Well, [[CaptainObvious yeah]]. It's right there in the title: Nazis have preserved Hitler's brain in a jar.
%%* GratuitousGerman: Ja, ja, ja!
* LosingYourHead: Hitler's head got saved, too.
* SpoilerTitle: In ''Madmen of Mandoras'' (aka ''The Amazing Mr. H.''), it was supposed to be a big reveal near the end.
* StockFootage: Most of the movie is just ''Madmen of Mandoras,'' with a half hour of additional footage shot years later. The becomes obvious as the added footage looks like a home movie and amateurish while the older footage is a lot more professional, like from an actual movie studio. This also leads to a very weird effect concerning differences in film stock and fashion, as everybody in the older portion has a clear '50s-early '60s look, while the newer footage has folks clearly from the late '60s. Even without considering that, though, there's lots of other random stock footage about the [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII war]] and an elephant.
* YouClonedHitler: Well, the Nazis in the film plan to make a clone of Hitler to give his disembodied head a body.
