The story line is a young Army officer (John Boles) is hand picked to deliver a personal message from the US president to a guerilla leader in Cuba who is trying to overthrow the Spanish gov't. He has all sorts of problems along the way and meets a girl (a VERY young Barbara Stanwyck) and an old Marine deserter (Wallace Berry).....after fighting Spanish troops, spies, the Cuban jungle, bandits, and others, he eventually delivers the message....and is the "hero"......pretty good story with lots of action.......was probably a hit when released....

Format: DVD
The DVD release of this 1936 20th Century Fox Film is mediocre. It is grainy in some places...but acceptable. Its not bad but not good either. So, also, for the movie. Wallace Beery is an acquired taste. John Boles, a handsome leading man of the 1930's is fine as the hero. But poor Barbara Stanwyck.....even with her brilliant acting skills she is straining credibility as a Cuban Senorita. She has been photographed beautifully with false eye lashes and lip gloss galore. There are even a couple of stunning close-ups of her. But she is miscast in this so-so melodrama. It is exciting in some places but the mediocre DVD transfer distracts considerably.

If the DVD transfer had been better the film would have been much more enjoyable. That said, it is always a treat to watch Stanwyck, even when she is miscast. She always brings things up to her level which is first class. Stanwyck's work has always been first class, even when applied to material that is not. This is not first class material. It's o.k. ....merely o.k.

I have been exposed to the essay version of "A Message to Garcia" ever since I was a teenager, and never new there was a movie version. Because I was oriented toward the essay version, I didn't know what to expect, but I did find the movie interesting, and, because I new the essay, predictable in its ending.
