Too Topical in the Tropics
7 July 2010 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

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.
