An all-girl orchestra is shipwrecked on what they think is a deserted
island ... until they find Karzin, son of Tarzan, whom all the girls
immediately fall for. Only the orchestra directrice is opposed to the
girls' association with the jungle king's son and chases him off ... then
though the firls are attacked by a tribe of natives, and the only one who
can save them is Karzin - and thus the directrice allows him back into the
girls' life, while he soon invites everone to his jungle manor ...
Of course though, Karzin isn't for real but an impostor who uses the king
of the jungle-routine to get girls, and to make it convincing, he even
pays the natives for their repeated attacks. Also, the island is anything
but deserted but is only a quiet holiday resort. Eventually, the girls
though stumble upon some tourists on the island, and ultimately they turn
the tables on Karzin ...
It's never good to base a film on just one joke, even if the film is -
like this one - only 45 minutes long., because the novelty wears off way
too quickly. So on a story level, Karzin in Cuba is a big
disappointment. At the same time though th efilm was never intended to be
big drama(or big comedy for that matter) but an early nudie cutie, with
girls running around in skimpy outfits, and sometimes even topless, and as
such the film is enjoyably cheap and cheesy, and while certainly not a
masterpiece of schlock cinema, it has a certain so-bad-it's-good-quality
that makes Karzin in Cuba easy to like - provided of course you don't take
the film seriously at all and don't see it through a feminist's eyes.
