This offers crude but nonetheless fascinating glimpses of Cuba in 1959, and from an unlikely source. There is no footage of Errol Flynn with Fidel Castro - just one still.

The music on the soundtrack, on the other hand, is perfectly apt, notwithstanding the indifferent sound quality.

Much of the actual footage is priceless, notwithstanding the fact that it has been cobbled together rather clumsily. I would commend it to anyone with an interest in the Cuban Revolution.
