Adventures of Don Juan (Warner 1949, Errol Flynn, Viveca Lindfors)



Errol Flynn seems to be winking at his own off-screen image in the role he was born to play. As the legendary lover, he returns to Spain and takes the post of fencing instructor at the royal academy. He becomes involved in court intrigue and swordplay when he hears of a plot against his adoring Queen.

More than 5,200 costumes were made for The Adventures of Don Juan including 18 for co-star Robert Douglas.
