Week-End in Havana

Synopsis: A ship company employee, Jay Williams, is sent to Florida where one of the company cruise ships is stuck on a reef off of the coast. He obtains waivers from all of the passengers with the exception of Nan Spencer, a department store salesgirl who wants her vacation NOW, not later. Jay is instructed to take Nan to Havana and set her up in the best hotel and keep her entertained. She visits a night club where the star attraction is Rosita Rivas, and meets Rosita's worthless manager, Monte Blanca, who makes a play for her. Trouble also comes in the form of Jay's fiancée, Terry McCracken, when a romance develops between Nan and Jay.

How would you like to spend

the weekend in Havana

How would you like to see

the Caribbean shore

Come on and run away

over Sunday

T o where the view

and the music is tropical

Y ou'll hurry back

to your office on Monday

But you won't be

the same anymore

How would you like to go

where nights are so romantic

W here stars are dancing rhumbas

in the sky-ay-ay

If you would like to spend

the weekend in Havana

Y ou better pack up

all your summer clothes

See you down at SloppyJoe's

So long, boy

and ship ahoy, Havana

All our advertising has been

about the carnival for the last three years.

Now let's change that slogan

for something different.

How about this?

Uh, " Mardi Gracias to you. "

- Mr. McCracken-

- Repeat that, Enrique.

The office is full of people

screaming at me.

- Mr. McCracken, the Queen is on the rocks.

- Yeah!

What? What rocks? Where?

- On a reef off the tip of Florida somewhere. I just got word.

- Is it bad?

Well, it's inconvenient, but I don't think there's

any danger. They're only 200 yards offshore.

Well, what was the captain doing in there

with a whole ocean to play around in?

Well, go ahead with that copy, but take out

the line about skirting the Florida coast.

Adios, Enrique.

I'll be in Williams's office.

- Hello, Dad. Doesn'tJay look wonderful?

- Wonderful.

I've just got word that the Cuban Queen

is piled up on a reef down in Florida.

- How'd that happen? A storm?

- No!

I just checked on it.

It was the clearest night in years.

There weren't any casualties,

but there could be plenty of lawsuits...

and you've got to get down there

and take care of things.

Oh, no, he doesn't.

Jay doesn't leave this town.

Have you forgotten

we're being married Saturday?

- I had, but it doesn't make any difference.

- Oh, doesn't it?

No! That ship's worth five million.

Your wedding's only costing 3,000.

You'd better call up

and charter a plane.

Excuse me. Miss Sullivan,

call Eastern Airways and ask them-

Jay, turn that thing off.

This is ridiculous.

What makes you think you have to go

with this building full of people?

- Send somebody else.

- Send somebody else?

Don't you realize what it could cost us

in damage suits...

if this isn't handled diplomatically?

You remember the Calypso Queen?

Just a little accident- nobody hurt.

We neglected to get waivers from four

or five passengers, and what happened?

We got sued for $500,000.

Whenever there's any kind

of an accident...

I always say,

remember the Calypso.

Dad, if you mess up my wedding,

I'll never forgive you.

Look, you can get married anytime...

but there's only one time

to get 480 passengers off a reef...

- and that's as soon as possible.

- [ Intercom Buzzing ]

[ Miss Sullivan On Intercom ]

Eastern Airways.

- Tell them you don't want them.

- We do want them!

I want a plane ready to leave for Florida

in 40 minutes.
