OUR MAN IN HAVANA (1959) (SPECIAL PROMOTION) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Ralph Richardson, Maureen O'Hara, Burl Ives, Noel Coward, Jo Morrow, Alec Guinness, Ernie Kovacs
Directed By:  Carol Reed
Composed By:  Frank Deniz, Laurence Deniz

“A real ‘winds of change’ film, with traditional values crumbling in the heat of pre-revolutionary Cuba. Guinness is wonderful…the film cleverly captures the confusion of optimism, cynicism, and money-grubbing greed of the ‘never had it so good’ years.”
– Time Out London

“A disarmingly humorous film…slyly impious…all of it sparkling with the drolleries of able actors and the witty sarcasm of Mr. Greene.”
– Bosley Crowther, The New York Times

Our Man in Havana (1959) is the great Graham Greene’s saucy adaptation of his own novel, starring the singular Alec Guinness as a vacuum-cleaner salesman in pre-revolutionary Cuba, bizarrely recruited (by Noel Coward, no less) as a British Intelligence spy. As his imagination turns out to be more highly developed than his espionage skills, the plot thickens. An extraordinary cast also includes Burl Ives, Maureen O’Hara, Ernie Kovacs, and Ralph Richardson; notably the film, gloriously directed by Carol Reed in his third collaboration with Greene, was shot in Havana just two months after the fall of the Batista regime, with the full permission of Fidel Castro.
