American International Pictures quickly followed its 1971 feature, The Incredible 2-Headed Transplant, with a new angle for the emerging Blaxploitation market, summed up in the tagline “They transplanted a WHITE BIGOT’S HEAD onto a SOUL BROTHER’S BODY!” In Lee Frost’s The Thing with Two Heads, white transplant surgeon Dr. Maxwell Kirshner (Ray Milland) and African American convict Jack Moss (Rosy Grier) go on the run together after Kirshner, faced with inoperable cancer, grafts his head onto Moss’ body. (35mm Presentation)
