In an early segment, a TV news update announces a big clue about the crook known as The Brain. He has a very large cerebrum and under stress or anxiety, his neck can't support his head. So, his head drops to one side (left or right). The next scene shows Col. Matthews with his head dropping to the side. He is then identified and flees in a police chase. He holds his head upright with his hand until he gets into his limo and escapes. But he never has another instance in which his head drops in the film. Not even in several scenes that would be highly stressful to any human being - i.e., when his apartment is all but destroyed, or when he's stuffed in a box, or when he's being chased and shot at.
The alternate English version runs 95 minutes (20 less than the French version).
