B-MOVIE BLAST: Escape from Hell Island (1963)

Captain James (Mark Stevens, who also directed this) is a Key West charter boat captain who is helping refugees get off Hell Island, which in this case would be Cuba. Beyond losing his license when one of them dies, he also hooks up with a married woman whose husband wants to kill him.

This is pretty much Hemmingway’s To Have or Have Not and even mentions Hemmingway numerous times and shows off his favorite bar, Sloppy Joe’s, which was in Key West. I’m shocked that polydactyl cats, boxing, cigars and more Hemmingway mentions were not made.

Nothing really happens here, to be honest. My ability to deal with bad movies is pretty legendary and this tested even my ability to be bored. Just imagine.
