  1. I would sneak out of my room late at night to watch old Friday Night Creature Feature movies broadcast by CBS on my family’s big old console tv. I first saw this movie in 1977. Awesome movie, thanks for uploading. 🥰🍿🥤🐶

  2. Now I know what they mean by jarhead. To be honest, I too had such an operation. Yes, I too live in a jar. At first it was a very jarring experience but you, not, I got use to it. It was very boring at first but now I have internet so I can make contributions. Have a nice day…It's me again. To be very honest, well, I don't think of myself as a human any longer. I'm more like a jam or a jelly. You know a preserve. Anyway, it's nice writing with you. All the best – Donovan jr.

  3. Reminds me of the old play at The Satyricon Theater called "Zoë Zoë the Rodeo Clown" Who died in a car crash and a scientist saved his brain then amplified his brain waves to where he took possession of the scientist then boosting the power he took over an entire town.

  4. I consider that this is far better than the remake with Lew Ayres and Nancy Davis. Nancy was young and pretty back then, but this original has a far more convincing story line and in-depth portrayals by the cast. And I like Vera Hruba Ralston, accent and all.

  5. RUMOR HAS IT that if you're on the national organ donor list, doctors rush to declare you  dead,  even if you've only been in a coma for a short time. So, if you want typical measures to save your life, then you shouldn't be on the organ donor list. They can make more by collecting your good organs than by saving your life. So hey, it's not just China hankering after your vital organs.

  6. By some odd coincidence, I watched two supposedly unrelated movies posted on YouTube. Both featured Erich von Stroheim as a mad doctor who tries to get away with a bogus death certificate. Ralston here looks like a zombie much of the time, as though she's waiting for someone to give her the next line.

  7. Orson Welles performed Donovan's Brain on one of the radios in which he performed and did an exceptional job. It was later done as another film with Lew Ayres and Nancy Davis. Donovan's Brain has fascinated story writer's for years and has many interpretations.

  8. Vera Hruba Ralston certainly had an influence over her husband, Herbert Yates, the Head of Republic Pictures. But what a good movie as this one turned out quite well with an outsbandcasting cast and very interesting story, well photographed in Glorious Black and White.
