As long as John Carradine has a voice and a brain
9 November 2013 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"Gault's Brain" utilized a common comic book plot, that of a disembodied brain in search of a body, guest starring the legendary John Carradine in the feature role of industrial heavyweight Harlow Gault, head of Gault Industries, seen only in the opening sequence depicting his funeral, a mysterious scar across the forehead. His replacement, Stryker (Floyd Levine), seems to be responsible for the recent series of accidents plaguing the company, which have been orchestrated by Gault himself, having gained great psychic and telekinetic powers since his brain is now free from its confines within a human cranium. Meanwhile, Gault's beautiful secretary (Cathie Shirriff) hungrily eyes a young, physically fit Olympic hopeful (David Mason Daniels), whose brain would never be missed, to be the unwitting donor to supply her employer's new body (he'll be a new man in no time). As another viewer accurately pointed out, it's difficult to steal any scenes from the enchanting, perfectly cast Lynda Carter, but Carradine was clearly the finest choice, his always well modulated voice making up for some of those latter day roles that left him mute ("Silent Night, Bloody Night" and "The Sentinel"). Of course, producers would continue to capitalize on the actor's horror fame, but as he exclaimed on a 1980 Merv Griffin (or Mike Douglas), "as long as I have a voice and a brain, I will never retire."
