MILLAND RIDES GRIER’S SHOULDERS TO SUCCESS
It is rare that an actor will admit that he won his success in a film by riding on the shoulders of another actor but in the case of Ray Milland, he literally does as he co-stars with Rosey Grier in “The Thing With Two Heads,” American International’s new shocker opening ..........-----at the eset ote Theatre. As the title suggests, Ray spends most of the movie with his head sitting on Rosey’s ample shoulders while they portray a man with two heads.
Ray presents his body only in the opening moments of the film in his role as a surgeon specializing in organ transplants who needs another body to survive an onslaught of cancer. It is Rosey’s massive frame which is used and Milland developed the method for the grafting of his head alongside Rosey’s so that they both become its co-owners. From there on, they proceed through a series of hair-raising adventures until the film’s climax.
Those who might have wondered what a two-headed man looks like will get a realistic effect in “The Thing With Two Heads.” Special pains were taken by special effects men and trick make-up and costume geniuses to insure this realism and make the strange figure provide the anticipated thrills. And Ray’s dramatic duties consist for the most part of delivering his lines as a part of the whole which consists of Rosey’s form.
The overall effect of the twoheaded spectre they create has its results in the story as gaping motorcyclists in a dirt race fall off their bikes at the strange sight and police cars slam into a mess of immovable objects and each other in a wild chase sequence.

Complicating the film’s events is the role Milland plays which portrays him as a bigotted white racist. Needless to say, he takes the substitute form of Rosey with ill grace and Grier replies in kind. The excitement of their adventures thus is only matched by the rancor of their antagonism to each other.
