Storyline

Sailor meets singer in Cuba. He's due to ship out, but hits it off with her, so he sticks around. Trouble brewing on many fronts - singer's best friend doesn't like the sailor, and singer has another suitor anyway. Rich guy takes her to all the fancy Cuban sports events - jai-alai, horse racing. Much more glamorous than spending time with Sailor. Can he win her over before he gets in trouble for letting his ship sail without him?

love triangle in cuber
27 March 2018 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

Photographed entirely in Cuba, according to the opening card. Hildita (Doris Dowling) bombs as a singer at the Cuban nightclub, and meets up with Joe (Tommy Wonder), the guy who came to her rescue in the club. Joe is a sailor, and due to leave in the morning. Joe shows her a couple songs and dance numbers, and helps her spiff up her act. Fun, flashy costumes, cuban style. The story is pretty bland. We want her to get together with Joe, but Señor Valdez also has his eye on her... but just what for? Written by Jay Victor. Not much about him anywhere. This seems to be the only thing he did. Also the last film role for Wonder. Although, according to wikipedia, Wonder was really a professional dancer, so apparently he concentrated on that, rather than film roles after this. Directed by Marion Gering. Made tons of stuff in the 1930s, but then disappeared for 15 years. did a few more things. like this. It's ok. Some fun scenery of cuba. jai alai, which you hardly ever see in films.
