When Cherokee Jack is flying Griffin, Cook, and Landis down to Cuba, rain spatters flat against the right side window of the airplane and runs straight down. If the plane had actually been in flight, or even running, the drops would be blown almost horizontally across the window. See more »
That's my daughter. She's been blind and all, ever since her husband was killed in the war.

Many variant prints of this film exist. Missing from most prints; including the widely distrubted Mystery Science Theater version are scenes that feature a longer opening, a scene where Landis and Cook drive their truck to a gas station and ask for work, a longer invasion of Cuba sequence, an extended scene with the blind woman, a longer train riding sequence, and an extended scene where Griffin and Landis get into a fight over Landis's ring.

As far as I can tell, Coleman Francis and two other losers, escape from the cops hook up with "Cherokee" Jack and hightail it to some para military camp that's training for a invasion of Cuba. After their failed attempt to capture Cuba from a very fake Castro, our heroic trio steals a plane, make it back to the states and then throw some old guy down a well while his blind piano playing daughter goes about her music. Then they start searching for tungsten and decide to go legit.(?) This movie makes absolutely no sense. Coleman Francis cuts and cuts and those cuts hurt. There are also scenes of Coleman strangling other characters and sitting in his cell in a very provacative manner. Watch this with Mike, Tom and Crow and try to keep a straight face when John Carradine sings the haunting title track, you'll shake for weeks to come.
