Lee Harvey Oswald reputedly watched this little-known John Huston film two separate times on TV in the weeks before he shot JFK on 11/22/63. (It "greatly excited" him, according to one historian.) Set in 1933, the movie tells of a group of Cuban revolutionaries who plot to overthrow their country's corrupt dictator. Jennifer Jones, John Garfield, and Pedro Armendáriz star. 35mm. 106 min.
