Of interest to die-hard fans of Flynn and bad films
1 December 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you liked "Cuban Rebel Girls," the semi-documentary long thought to be Errol Flynn's last film, you'll love this--but who in their right mind liked "Cuban Rebel Girls?" (Well, fans of really bad movies would. Apparently Michael and Harry Medved and Randy Dreyfus were unaware of this one; it might have beat out "Plan Nine From Outer Space" in their polling for "Worst Film of All Time.") Anyway, CRG was a grainy, poorly filmed "semi-documentary" of the days when Castro's forces were on the verge of ousting Batista from Cuba; "Cuban Story" is an all-documentary attempt at the same thing. For Flynn enthusiasts whose interest includes his last days, CS--available on DVD only--is a treasure trove: here's Errol in an office setting, sporting his trademark cigarette holder and attempting, none too successfully, to ad-lib an introduction and ending to the hodgepodge of documentary footage that makes up most of the film. The liner notes to the DVD suggest that Flynn recorded the narration to the middle of the film at a later, and presumably more sober, date. In fact, he did nothing of the sort--the voice that narrates the documentary footage is quite obviously not Flynn's at all--although the script is written in first person for Flynn, when "he" narrates footage of himself and Beverly Aadland in a casino! The mystery voice is unmistakably British, but much closer to, say, Ronald Colman's accent than Flynn. (Some sources say it's the voice of director-producer Victor Pahlen.) So, if you're interested in Flynn's last year--or historical oddities from the early days of the Cold War--this one'll pique your interest. Otherwise, it'll make "Plan Nine From Outer Space" look like "Citizen Kane."
