KIRKUS REVIEW

Gil Rolfe, conniving with the CIA, retrieves besebol fan Castro's favorite pitcher from under his very beard via a small boat, even though the Havana hurler insists on loading it with his girl, her mother, her aunt and uncle, their spoiled son, and the boy's pet monkey. Crashing out with this crazy cargo is fast and funny. However, Rolfe's unlikely tragic romance with an anti-Castro Cuban plus set piece sermonizing about ""Commitment"" short circuits the high comedy potential into just another Sugar Curtain's spy-venture.
