Errol Flynn, playing himself as a war correspondent, helps Fidel Castro overthrow Cuban dictator Batista. The film was shot, with Castro's cooperation, while he was still fighting Batista. Written by
Errol Flynn, beloved as Robin Hood, Capt. Blood, etc, ended his career with this hilariously pathetic excuse for a movie. "Cuban Rebel Girls" portrays an American girl (Beverly Aadland, who's got nothing except her looks) going to Cuba to help her boyfriend fight for Fidel Castro's army in their revolution against Fulgencio Batista. It warps the mind not that they went to Cuba and made a pro-Castro movie - although I find that neat - but that Flynn dropped down to this. I wouldn't be surprised if knowing that he was part of it is what caused Flynn's death soon after. Worth seeing as an example of film-making gone terribly wrong.
I wonder whether or not Castro remembers that he participated with Errol Flynn in making this movie. If he does, he probably tries to hide it.
