Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, May 10, 2014

A movie about the life of Ernest Hemingway, Papa, recently filmed scenes in Cuba, becoming the first Hollywood feature movie to do so since the 1959 revolution. "It was an absolute passion to actually make it in Cuba where everything that is in the script happened," said director Bob Yari. The production crew was able to film in the country because of a license from the Treasury Department that exempted the film from most restrictions from the American embargo. The actor Adrian Sparks, who portrays Hemingway, said, "I grew up with this image of this evil, dark country somewhere in the mist. To be here is to realize what an exquisitely beautiful country this is."

Economic embargoes, I don't see how they help anyone.

A big ----storm is about to come down about this, from the anti-Castro types still in Miami. Just 'cause they hate Fidel and his brother doesn't mean they love freedom.
