Message to Garcia is on the actual event of Rowan’s carrying a message from President McKinley to Garcia in Cuba during the Spanish-American War. The parts of Dory and Raphalita are added. Barbara Stanwyck plays the Cuban girl, while top billed Wallace Beery supplies comic relief through the lengthy jungle trek, playing off both sides during the conflict.
The film opens with the Maine Incident of 1898 in which an American warship blew-up in Havana harbor, allegedly following sabotage by Spain, triggering the outbreak of the Spanish–American War. President McKinley, wishing to make contact with General Calixto García, the leader of the Cuban revolt against Spain, summons an American army officer Andrew Summers Rowan to the White House and gives him a message which he is to personally deliver into Garcia’s hands.
