Riverside plants clearly have wires attached to them and are moved by the wires to create a more natural scene. This is most apparent when Terry's friends are on the boat trying to reach Terry and tell him the news of the war's outbreak. See more »
You'll soon be on Cuban soil.
Not me! I'm going back to Elvira. And if I hadn't got plastered and followed you on this boat, I wouldn't be here.
Oh, stop your squawkin'. Nobody invited you in the first place.
I know it! I thought it was the Hoboken ferry! And here I wind up in Cuba and Elvira ain't got her bitters.

A fabulous pre-code film with the incandescent and beautiful Lupe Velez. The film meanders a bit, but Jimmy Durante is wonderful in comic relief. A few lewd jokes help liven things up: When a baby cries incessantly, fellow marine Ernest Torrence suggests Jimmy Durante quiet the infant by nursing him. So Jimmy obliges by unbuttoning his blouse...and pulls out a pocket watch to distract the wailing youngster. Blooper Mention: Jimmy Durante is accidentally slipped a castor oil filled lemonade by the bartender. He drinks it all, despite wincing at the taste...but we never see what happens afterwards. Did he get violently ill? Wander Havana with brown-stained pants? Find the toilet in the nick of time? Guess the scene was left on the cutting room floor...
