    Coburn is pretty much the whole show here, with his cheerful tough-guy insouciance. But the religious/moral message came off a bit garbled and incoherent. The intent of "Brother Brains" may have been laudable, but the way it played it ending up looking like just another con job, a cosmetic way of getting the bad guys to fall into the net. At least we got to see Batman's butler in a Raymond Massey sort of role.moreless
