It starts with a brilliant story - the screenplay being adapted by the author Graham Greene himself - then an all - star cast: Alec Guinness, Noel (the Master) Coward, Burl Ives and so on act their socks off! There's no-one to toych them these days, sadly - all too busy wanting to be liked. It's hilarious and touching and reminds one of the state of Cuba before Castro seized power. Whatever you thought of him, when you see how it was, it's little wonder something had to give. Watch this and read the book. You won't regret it.

Read the book many years ago and loved it. Having recently visited Cuba, it was fascinating to see many recognisable locations. Filmed just after the overthrow of Batista by Castro et al but before Cuba descended into the repressive socialist state that ensued. The plot is of course a wonderful satire and Alec Guinness as Wormold is perfect.

A very good British comedy/thriller with a great cast including Alec Guiness, Ralph Richardson, Noel Coward and Burl Ives, from the novel by Graham Greene. The idea of 'our spy' who was nothing more than a vacuum cleaner salesman with his made up 'spy ring' actually had a real life variation in World War 2 with our fake spy, 'Garbo'.

The '2nd feature', 'Lady Godiva', (on the sleeve), 'Lady Godiva of Coventry' on the film itself, was an interesting old curio for three reasons; 1, Lady G being played by Maureen O'Hara; 2, Old Coventry being re-constructed somewhere in America, and 3, a very short speaking part for a very young Clint Eastwood, cast as. 'First Saxon'! See if you can spot him as first bowman.

All in all, a very good buy. Gordon Thomas, of Coventry.

Sharp picture in Cinemascope letterbox format, good sound.
As for the films, Our Man in Havana is a gem, as well as having some relevance to our own times. Haven't got round to watching the other film in the box yet.

A classic. If youve never seen it, watch it. The acting is second to none.

Our man is 5 star. Godiva is dated Hollywood. Maureen is delightful

A classic. Havana had barely changed from when this was made in 59 and when I visited last in 2005.
