Not that it matters. Nobody watches movies like this for good acting. You watch for the cheesiness of it all, and this is the pure cheddar. Snappy patter (some of it not bad), action (endless chase scenes), cheap special effects, and incredible plotting. It's all here, and you can't look away. Give it a try and see if you don't believe me.

Overlooked Movies -- The Thing with Two Heads
I'm not going to kid you. This is a pretty bad movie, but if you're in the right mood, it'll crack you up. You get Rosie Grier a football player who couldn't act playing a condemned man (he's innocent) and you get Ray Milland as the very rich bigot who get his head attached to Grier's body (don't ask). Milland was at one time a respected and very good actor. During the last three decades of his career, however, he was reduced to taking work in mostly not very good, truly low-budget exploitation films like this one. He's still a pro, and he still does a good job, but he's about the only one.
