Description
This Golden Globe nominee for Best Picture in 1961 was directed by Britain's Carol Reed from the book by Graham Greene. A dark spy spoof blessed with a superb cast, Our Man in Havana stars Alec Guinness as a hapless vacuum cleaner salesman who becomes a British secret agent (and whose inept fictions come to life); Ralph Richardson as his London superior; Maureen O'Hara as British Secret Service agent Beatrice Severn; Burl Ives as a German doctor, Ernie Kovacs as Police Captain Segura; and Nol Coward as British agent Hawthorne.

"A satire on British spy practices that Graham Greene knew well; he'd seen agents commended for turning in false reports to pad their expense accounts. Greene also made plenty of Wormold-like silly mistakes, like locking his secret codebooks in a safe and then not being able to locate the combination. But much of his story is quite serious. Pre-Castro Havana is a city where anything can happen, much like Vienna of The Third Man."DVD Savant
