Description by OLDIES.com:
A romantic musical comedy about a department store clerk on a Caribbean cruise, determined to have the vacation of her life.
Alice Faye stars as a cruise ship passenger and John Payne plays the liner's executive who has to postpone his wedding to get passenger waivers against lawsuits after their ship runs aground. He offers her a trip to Havana, puts her in the most lavish hotel, buys her an extravagant wardrobe and supplies her with gambling money. The only thing missing is romance. The incomparable spitfire Carmen Miranda struts her stuff, shakes her fruit and leads a great cast, including the debonair Cesar Romero, in this engaging and brightly colored musical.
Inspired casting and Walter Lang's deft direction breathe abundant life into WEEK-END IN HAVANA, in which a woman's trip to Cuba leads to romance, laughter, and sizzling songs. Nan Spencer (Alice Faye) has saved up for years for her vacation to Havana and is sorely disappointed when the cruise ship runs aground near Florida. While the other guests accept vouchers for another trip, Nan refuses because this was her only opportunity to get away. When she intimates that the failure with the ship was the captain's fault, the cruise company's vice president, Jay Williams (John Payne), personally accompanies Nan to Havana to avoid any more serious legal repercussions. Entrusted with ensuring that Nan will have a good time, Jay pays handsome ne'er-do-well Monte Blanca (Cesar Romero) to romance her. Meanwhile, Jay is forced to relieve Blanca of his own girlfriend singer, Rosita Rivas (Carmen Miranda), who decides Jay is a fine substitute for her romantic attentions. This wacky love quadrangle provides WEEK-END IN HAVANA with plenty of material for several boisterous song-and-dance routines. "Week-end in Havana," "The Man with the Lollypop Song," and "Tropical Magic" are among the catchy numbers featured in this spicy musical fiesta.
