Audience Reviews for Week-End in Havana


Another Technicolor Fox travelogue, not as giddy as its predecessors but still a lot of fun; Faye sings "Tropical Magic" and Miranda warbles "When I Love, I Love."

A fun romp through Cuba with some singing and dancing. Not much substance, though. Why does anyone love one another?

7.5/10. Delightful musical comedy with a terrific cast. John Payne is excellent, Alice Faye is well cast and the supporting cast is superb, especially Carmen Miranda and Cesar Romero. Fun, entertaining and has great musical numbers. Excellent sets, fine costumes.
