It's 1961. Two servicemen smuggle a box of military gear to USA. Leroy tries out a military camera and accidentally takes a picture of some military facilities. Army finds one of the pictures and thinks they're communist spies.
In 1961, Chas and Leroy, two fun-loving military serviceman who had enough of the service, leave Panama as stowaways in a military cargo plane flying for the States. Leroy is not satisfied with compensation for his army days, so he smuggles with him one box of military supplies, which he plans to sell in the USA. He tries out a military camera on some military base they fly over and throws away the photos. In the states, an army cleaner finds photos inside the plane and alerts his superiors. They think the stowaways are communist spies and the base starts a frantic search. Written by
Judge Reinhold and Ken Wahl are caught up in the 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion!
Chas McClain(Wahl) and Leroy Beecher(Judge)are returning home to Florida from military service in the Panama Canal zone as stow-aways on a C-47 cargo plane. Leroy is smuggling a trunk full of guns, cameras, and other goods he has appropriated as his Army "discharge bonus"
When the C-47 makes an unexpected supply drop at a secret military base, under preparation for a Cuban invasion, Leroy innocently takes a photograph while testing his new infra-red camera.
Chas and Leroy's civilian freedom is short-lived because a paranoid intelligence agent has discovered evidence of Judge's photography and assumes the boys are spies. Captain Munoz(John Saxon)doing his best Cuban,officer in the invasion force, is ordered to bring in the boys for questioning. Order are to stop at nothing, including torture, to get the answers they want. This is some of Reinhold best acting, he shows skill he hasn't use since. A good late-nite actioner. Oh yeah lots of cool cars from late 50's and early 60's.
