Cuban Rebel Girls is a 1959 semi-dramatic documentary b-movie, notable solely for being the last on-screen performance of Errol Flynn.

It was written and narrated by Flynn, who was sympathetic to the Cuban revolution being led by Fidel Castro in its early phase when Castro was denying being a communist.[2] The film consists of a drama about a group of young American volunteers helping in the fight against the Government of Fulgencio Batista, with Flynn appearing in a few scenes as a commentator & reporter. It is filmed in black and white with a screen time of 68 minutes. It co-starred Beverly Aadland, then Flynn's girlfriend.
