Filmed in 1960, but not released until May 1962. See more »
Apart from the opening title, there are no other credits. An announcer says that the film is so important, there is no time for them. He runs through the leading actors and the director over the opening scene of the picture. A credit scroll does appear at the end. See more »
Inspired by Fidel Castro's success in Cuba, similarly-bearded Robert Lowery (as El Maximo Toro) pretends to kidnap his own busty blonde lover, as she is also the daughter of French "Millionaire" Prime Minister Marvin Miller (as Henri Degiere). Mr. Lowery hopes to become dictator of "Hondo-Rica", a sugar-producing Republic somewhere east of Cuba. Mr. Miller is assisted by comic concierge Jackie Coogan (as El Captaine Toussaint), and Lowery by sidekick speech-writer Gabriel Dell (as Bill Henderson). A few neighborly Americans, including "Dixie" soundtrack-swelling Jimmy Ellison (as Axel "Longhorn" Gates), decide to become involved. Bad decision.
** When the Girls Take Over (5/62) Russell Hayden ~ Robert Lowery, Marvin Miller, Jackie Coogan, James Ellison
