The secret weapon from "Our Man In Havana"


a) In the 1959 movie "Our Man in Havana" based on the 1958 Graham Green novel of the same name, Wormwold a British vacuum cleaner salesman living in Havana is hired as a spy, and to make it look as if he is doing something, writes fictional reports about the various spies he's hired and starts passing off drawings of vacuum cleaners as secret military weapons or installations which he sends back to the British Secret Services.







b) The drawings were shown with some clarity, and perhaps could be perceived as piece of science fiction art and and British surrealistic thinking, that perhaps caused HR Giger to take not of





c) In he film at the end, a  Science fiction toy made in Japan is shown presented by a London street seller
