Steve's Church-Less Movie Of The Week ...

Yoinked from the almighty wikipedia ...

"Red Zone Cuba, also known as Night Train to Mundo Fine, is a 1966 American drama film directed by Coleman Francis, who also wrote, produced, and played the starring role. It follows the meandering adventures of an escaped convict and two ex-convicts he recruits along the way as they become involved in the 1961 Bay of Pigs Invasion, and a quest to find a hidden treasure in a tungsten mine.

Red Zone Cuba was Coleman Francis' final film as director, and his only starring role. In the other two films he helmed, The Skydivers and The Beast of Yucca Flats, he limited his acting to cameos.

In December 1994, it was featured as an episode of the movie-mocking television series Mystery Science Theater 3000. As of August 2010[update], the film is ranked number three on the 'Bottom 100' list on the Internet Movie Database with a score of 1.4/10. Francis' other two directorial efforts, Skydivers, and Yucca Flats, also appear in the lower reaches of the Bottom 100.

Though John Carradine receives fourth billing in the credits, and was prominently featured in the advertising and promotional material for the film, he only appears briefly, during a framing sequence at the beginning of the film. Carradine also sings the film's opening theme song, Night Train to Mundo Fine.

On December 17, 1994, Red Zone Cuba was featured as the subject of an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000. It was the second of Coleman Francis's films to be featured in the show's sixth season, following The Skydivers and preceding The Beast of Yucca Flats. The film was preceded by the short Speech: Platform Posture and Appearance, an educational film about public speaking.

One of the main gags in the host segment breaks was that Dr. Forrester had fallen victim to a vicious beating by mobsters who had come to attack TV's Frank over a large unresolved debt. Forrester spent much of the episode in a full body cast. The film itself had Mike and the bots repeatedly comparing Francis's character to Curly Howard of the Three Stooges, while under the strain of watching it Mike became convinced he was Carol Channing."
