(United Kingdom, 1959, 111 minutes, b&w, 35mm)
An English vacuum cleaner salesman living in Havana is recruited by the British Secret Service in this satirical spy caper. Jim Wormold (Alec Guiness) invents phony intelligence and recruits imaginary agents for the sole purpose of making extra money. Written by Graham Greene and based on his novel of the same name, OUR MAN IN HAVANA was filmed in Cuba shortly after the 1959 revolution--with the permission of the Castro government.
