After less than 24 hours in boot camp and a laughable desertion attempt, the Army "strike force" (which consists of five guys, and gets {{Handwave}}d by being a preliminary raiding force or something) "shoves off"[[note]]"''[[NoYou You]]'' shove off!"[[/note]] to Cuba (well, UsefulNotes/NewMexico posing as Cuba) to [[HistoricalInJoke pave the way for the main Bay of Pigs invasion]], only to be foiled by UsefulNotes/FidelCastro (or, rather, a look-very-vaguely-alike with a badly-fitting false beard), who captures our daring trio and takes them to a POW camp. While in prison, Griffin learns that one of their fellow soldiers--on the verge of death--owns a valuable uranium/diamond/tungsten mine in Arizona, and the three decide to break out and take control of the mine themselves.

''Red Zone Cuba'', also known as ''Night Train to Mundo Fine'', is a movie about... well, it's hard to say really. It follows Griffin, an escaped convict and outlaw played by none other than Creator/ColemanFrancis (who also wrote, produced and directed the film) and his two associates as they try to scrabble out a marginal existence as migrant workers in the American South (OK, it's obviously the trashlands around Lancaster in the days before meth labs). They learn that the army is planning to invade UsefulNotes/{{Cuba}} (good job on the whole "secret" thing, huh?!) and decide to sign-up--so they can desert with the signing bonus. (Unfortunately for them, the Army doesn't pay cash up front.)

While in prison, Griffin learns that one of their fellow soldiers - on the verge of death - owns a valuable uranium/diamond/tungsten mine in Arizona, and the three decide to break out and take control of the mine themselves.

Once back in the US however, the trio are distracted by a restaurant and decide to vent their frustrations by murdering the owner and raping his blind daughter, hopping on a freight train (driven by none other than Creator/JohnCarradine) and stealing each other's keepsakes for petty cash. When they finally get to the mine, the soldier's widow happily offers to split the deeds to the mine with them, and, out of gratitude, Griffin shoots her. The police, finally noticing the 250 pound bald guy murdering his way across the country, close in. Coleman Francis is shot, and his partners surrender. One of the policemen loads the widow's body into the back of his truck and returns her to her home where, by a twist of fate, her soldier husband has just inexplicably arrived home completely well. But his wife is NotQuiteDead, and they share a reunion as the film thankfully shudders to a stop.

Added DiffLines:

* StageWhisper: A downright absurd example. After the sheriff reveals there's a reward of five thousand dollars for Griffin's capture, Cook sharply warns Landis "Griffin'll kill ya!" so he doesn't spill the beans; this is done at normal speaking volume, with the sheriff three feet away and staring right at the pair of them.
