Movie Info

British expatriate Jim Wormold (Alec Guinness) runs a vacuum cleaner store in Havana, Cuba. He has promised his vain daughter, Milly (Jo Morrow), a horse and a country club membership, which leaves him desperate for money. When Hawthorne (Noel Coward) proposes he become a paid British agent and recruit other spies, he accepts, and haplessly embarks on a new career. Though he's delighted when he meets gorgeous fellow spy Beatrice Severn (Maureen O'Hara), Wormold finds he's now a target.

    A very droll comedy. Some of the commentary isn't fully explored but Guiness' central performance is deeply complex and often hilarious. His interactions with Coward are delightful.

    This is from the Martini Movie Collection, There are a number of movies I never heard of in this collection. this one called Our Man in Havana. Its hard to decided if this is supposed to be a comedy, a suspense film or drama. This movie filmed in Cuba in 1959, before it closed its doors to America, also by the looks of things was quite rich and beautiful, a vacuum cleaner salesman is recruited to be a British Agent, he makes up intelligence and agents that do exist, everything is going alone fine till Britain awards him a secretary and then his world starts to crumple. A very enjoyable film noir title to say the least. The recipe along with this film is Cuban Martini, and you might need a few to help you enjoy the movie more. 3 1/2 stars for this one.

    If you're familiar with Alec Guinness' other 1950s comedies, 'Our Man in Havana' fits in nicely among them with its unhurried pace and dry sense of humor. Not as funny as either 'The Ladykillers' or 'The Lavender Hill Mob,' but more sustained than 'The Man In the White Suit.'

    a thriller/comedy with alec guiness in the leading role. the acting from guiness is pro as usual but there's not anything too great about this movie but then again it isn't bad. an average affair
