***SPOILERS*** Traveling to Communist Cuba Anne Palmer, Dana Wynter,is determined to get her husband Scott back home with her to the USA if that's the last thing she does. Scott or Scotty as Anne calls him is behind bars in a Havana prison charged with espionage for the US. A charge that Anne feels s totally false and is there now to prove his innocence. The truth of Scott's incarceration is far more complicated then anyone including Anne could have imagined. It's then where Amercan tourist and reporter with a Cuban visa Mike Taggaet, Steve Forrest, pops up. Taggart knows the real reason why Scott is being held captive by the Castro regime and want's not only to get him freed but get his hands on the $1,000,000,00 dollars in US currency he had stashed away before the "Bearded One's", Fidel Castro, men took over the country.

Under orders from their leader Fidel Castro it's up to both Col. Valsaquez, Val Avery, and Havana police Captain Santos, Frank Silvera, to find out from Anne about what her husband did with what turned out to be stolen Mafia money.As for Anne she has no idea in what the two are talking about since Scott kept her in the dark on what he was doing in Cuba. He told her he only went there, before Castro's men took over, to see the sights and buy himself a box of Cuban cigars. It's later when it's reported to Anne by Capt.Santos that Scott died in prison of a sudden and unexpected heart attack that she begins to realizes,together with Mike Taggert,that the whole story of Scott being a spy for the CIA is all bunk. It's the money that he had hidden is what the Cuban Government is after and she as well as Taggert, who had by then hooked up with Anne, will never leave the island alive until it gets it's hands on it.

***SPOILERS*** It doesn't take that long for both Anne and Taggert to find the money in a number of clues that Scott left for her before he was arrested by the Cuban Secret Police. But the difficulty of getting out of the Communist Peoples Republic is a bit more of a challenge. It's then that American artist and helpless alcoholic Conrad Easter, Victor Jory, steps into the frame. Just putting on an act that he's a helpless drunken sot Easter is really a leader of the counter-revolution against Castro's Government. And it's that one million dollars that Anne and Taggert have that will buy Easter's men lots of arms and ammunition to overthrow the Castro Regime! That's if both Anne & Taggert,in Conrad offering them his boat to escape the island in exchange, will hand the money over to them!

P.S what the film brings out is not just how brutal and totalitarian the Castro Regime is but just how corruptible those running it are. Who without their help both Anne & Taggart would have been lucky to end up in front of a Cuban firing squad instead of spending the rest of their lives working on a Cuban sugar plantation or Gulag. And worst of all being forced to listen on the radio to Chairman Castro's boring and endless speeches, sometimes lasting as much as eight hours, that's a fate even worst then death itself!
