The Thing with Two Heads ★★½ 1972 (PG)

The inspired box copy says it all: “They share the same body…but hate each other's guts!” Max Kirshner (Milland), a white racist surgeon, plans to cheat death by having his head attached to another body. Imagine his surprise when he finds his noggin stitched onto black Jack Moss (Grier), right next to the original head. Nobody involved is taking the material too seriously. 93m/C DVD . Ray Milland, Roosevelt “Rosie” Grier, Don Marshall, Roger Perry, Kathrine Baumann, Lee Frost, Wes Bishop, Rick Baker; D: Lee Frost; W: James Gordon White; C: Jack Steely; M: Robert O. Ragland.
