In late 1958, Hollywood swashbuckler Errol Flynn found himself in the middle of a real-life adventure more improbable than the plot of any film he ever made: the Cuban revolution. The episode was a fitting climax to mid-20th century Cuba’s obsession with American movies — a fixation that led Havana to boast of more movie theatres than New York City and Cubans to worship Gone with the Wind and Casablanca. Sixty years later, many of Havana’s iconic movie houses remain, and the Cuban love affair with Classical Hollywood still haunts the collective imagination.
