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
Sadly this was to be Fynn's last picture. It is the muddled story of a gang of teenage girls out to support Fidel Castro in his attempt to overthrow Batista. The movie was obviously conceived when the U.S. was still in support of the rebel leader. Star Aadland was Flynn's 16 year-old girlfriend at the time. During his career Flynn was arguably as much of a 'Come-back Kid' as President Clinton: Flynn was able to overcome lawsuits, sexual peccadilloes, alcoholism and just about anything else you can name, and still rebound with one more decent appearance on screen. Still, it is doubtful that he would have survived the embarrassment of this picture.
