Errol, Fidel and the Cuban Rebel Girls
Publisher:University of Queensland Press
Cuba, 1959: In the final year of Errol Flynn's life, he found time for one last adventure. The dashing star of many Hollywood films had always longed to be a real hero. Fidel Castro was the genuine article, and now he was looking for fame. What each man had the other wanted, and as revolution raged around them, the stage was set for an explosive encounter. Cuba is on the brink of revolution and Errol Flynn is there making what will be his final film. When Flynn and Castro meet, the weapons they use aren't guns and grenades, but words and women. Errol is involved in the latest in a long line of relationships with under-age women. Fidel is ready to march triumphantly into Havana after overthrowing the Batista government. Within days of the coup, Errol is chased out of Cuba with the firing squad and Fidel hot on his heels. Featuring a full cast of Hollywood movie stars, beautiful women, Cuban revolutionaries and New York mobsters, Errol, Fidel and the Cuban Rebel Girls is the story of two men at the opposite ends of astonishing careers. It is a story with two heroes...but there is only ever room for one.
