Critic Reviews for Our Man in Havana
The mixture of mayhem and heehaw is particularly tricky to handle, and not even the sure hand of Director Reed has always achieved a smooth blend.
Polished, diverting entertainment, brilliant in its comedy but falling apart towards the end when undertones of drama, tragedy and message crop up.
A real 'winds of change' film, with traditional values crumbling in the heat of pre-revolutionary Cuba. Guinness is wonderful.
For those who regard Alec Guinness as the niftiest little con man on the screen, we will guarantee Our Man in Havana to be a source of immeasurable fun.
Guinness is in above-average form, and Ernie Kovacs is wonderful as the callous but charming government official with a soft spot for Guinness's daughter.
Audience Reviews for Our Man in Havana
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.
Alec Guinness plays the hapless secret agent in a tale of secret service blunders and ministers who can't lose face that still rings true today. Superbly clever yet still light and humorous entertainment. The most enjoyable movie from the B&W era that I've seen. Filmed during the first months of the Cuban revolutionary government, it was set shortly before the revolution and the Cuban missile crisis that it almost prophetically predicts.
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.'
