What Do These Four Films Have In Common


Recommended Posts

CUBA

 

Si, Señor! All four movies have scenes set in Cuba, which is very much in the news this week:

 

1. "The Old Man and the Sea" (1958) -- The title character played by Spencer Tracy is a Cuban fisherman.

 

2. "Topaz" (1969) -- Sir Alfred Hitchcock's final film of the 1960s is about international political intrigue during the 1962 Cuban missile crisis.

4. "A Few Good Men" (1992) -- The entire film revolves around a deadly incident involving Marines at the U.S. Navy base at Guantanamo.

Death caused by the "villain" ?
