Cuba Cubana - second of her comeback
6 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cuba Cubana is Zara's second of her film come back and it's very entertaining. It starts off with Robby Townsend , a reporter, played by O. W. Fisher, and his his news photographer assistant , Billy, played by Hans Richter, are given assignment to go to San Puerto Antonio in South America to report on an uprise,although it was shot in Spain. Both of them,once they arrive, go to the bull fights,in south America?, and Robby notices Arabella played by Zara, the Governor,played by Paul Hartman,is also at the bull fights,notices her and him beginning to talk to each other as Robby gets his watch stuck on Arabella's shawl. He has him investigated later on.Robby discovers later on that she a owner of a night club so he decides to visit the night club to see her ,right at the time he and his assistance have to report an uprising.So when he enter's the club she singing a song,a women of my age, I think that'the title. It's very tuneful. Well after the show he goes to see her in the back entrance of the club, she's now typing some business.She rejects him and billy shows up to let him know what they have to report. When they go to the uprising, between what looks like union workers and the police they spy on it from the roof top of a building. Once billy flashes his camera the police and workers notice they catch them both. A fight starts. Robby runs off while the other one is captured.Robby accidentally kills one of the workers trying to stop him from leaving. He goes back to Zaras night club with a head injury. She rescues him. Leaving a note behind in her room her servant notices it and later on send it to the Governor. Well from her servants discovery,he's wanted for murder so she hides him. but because of that message ,the other servant found out,from Robby,the governor gets suspicious and have the police investigated. she hides him in another part of the place so the police won't find him.They start having a affair , as she tries to find his innocents and get him out of the country. The Govenor some how finds out about him and captures him behind Arrabellas back. As shes trying to find out from the Governor the situation without him suspecting her involved in the hiding But some how He's found innocent or the charges are dropped and he leaves back to Germany ending the affair with Arrabella. This is a Good melodramatic love story although they didn't sync in the soundtrack the "olé ! olé ! sounds during the bull fight scenes for what ever reason. There is a dance number that the dancers also sing the title of the movie. Zara's night clubs are always mini theaters with vaudeville acts or so it seems but this is a good movie.
