Storyline: Don Juan de Marana damages Spanish prestige in diplomatic circles with his indiscreet womanizing,although he attempts to rehabilitate his image after he meets the beautiful Queen Margaret, trapped in a loveless arranged marriage with the weak and feckless King Philip III. The Queen becomes the love of Don Juan's life, and although she is obviously attracted to him, the relationship remains appropriately platonic. Becoming caught up in court intrigue, Don Juan uncovers a plot by the King's minister, the ruthless Duke de Lorca, to become the power behind the throne. After de Lorca is exposed by Don Juan, he brazenly intimidates the cowardly king into compliance and threatens to execute the uncooperative queen. Helped by his friends, his servant Leporello, fencing master Don Serafino, and court jester Sebastian, Don Juan tries to foil the Duke's evil machinations.

Brilliant film
A rare find. 10 out 10 in my estimation. Apparently Flynn later in life wanted to be considered a talented actor rather than simply a ladies' man or "matinee idol". I think he was an excellent actor, a characterization borne out in his performance as Don Juan in this film.

The cinematography is brilliant, the dialog, though typical of films of this genre, is tongue-in-check and thereby hilarious as well as highly entertaining. The acting is superb across the board.

The film, true to the studio system protocols of the era, is stylized, but the stylization works brilliantly. I am certain that any contemporary aspiring director, writer or actor who is serious about his or her craft can learn an immense amount from this film.

Errol Flynn led the life of Don Juan
I'm sure anyone who has read Mr. Flynn's autobiography, "My Wicked, Wicked Ways", will agree his real life was as exciting as Don Juan's. Women, adventure and a bit of his "wicked ways" makes for enjoyable reading for an Errol Flynn fan. Having said this, "The Adventures of Don Juan" is a wonderful, entertaining movie with Mr. Flynn looking handsome, fit and very comfortable in this role. The fencing scenes, costumes and a terrific Max Steiner score are excellent. The supporting cast simply adds to the entertainment value. After many years it was a pleasure to see this movie once again and realize what a wonderful actor Errol Flynn was. No other actor could have played the part better, or looked as good in tights.

Flynn's Last Great Swashbuckler....
THE ADVENTURES OF DON JUAN was the last of the great swashbuckling classics Flynn would star in.Though Flynn isn't exactly in his prime here nobody was ever better as the dashing devil may-care swashbuckling hero! Once again Flynn is reunited with his greatest screen sidekick Alan Hale,who is always a delight.Viveca Lindfors plays the Queen with grace and a strong will and her beauty further enhances her performance. Robert Douglas is no Basil Rathbone but he still makes a fine villain.The score by Max Steiner is very fast paced and exciting and the duel between Flynn and Douglas is also nicely staged. All in all this is a truly entertaining adventure with Flynn as dashing and heroic as only he could be!

MY RATING: 9/10

A colorful costumed adventure... highly recommended.
The film opens in 17-Century Europe...

After many shameful incidents, Don Juan is forced to return to Spain where he discovers a country without life, driven to war, and a King in petticoat with a dissatisfied Queen...

But, despite of all the court's intrigues, Don Juan saves the lovely Queen and the confused King Philip III (Romney Brent) from the treacherous schemes of a malicious minister, the great Duke De Lorca and his puppeteers Raymond Burr & Douglas Kennedy...

His farewell scene with the Queen of Spain remembered me "Prisoner of Zenda."

Don Juan, wisely, persuades the Queen that her duties lies with her people, and after kissing her, he says: "I shall be the only one who knew that for a little while there was no Queen."

Flynn had the flair and style to play, with elegance, the charming manipulator, gaining admiration through his charisma, talents and abilities, seducing loving maidens, coming against angry husbands, causing a striking impression on the tall, dark, beautiful Queen...

Challenging the mighty Duke De Lorca, he makes his point as the loyal and devoted friend to the crown, when he declared: "Some men prefer the conquest of beauty to the conquest of a throne."

Viveca Lindfors plays a generous Queen who fights for peace and works for the welfare of her people... She is brave enough before an impertinent traitor who dreams to be a future king... She is a passionate young woman before Don Juan, her eventual true love...

Robert Douglas played a stupendous villain in many adventure films, crossing swords with great stars (Burt Lancaster, Cornel Wilde and Robert Taylor). As Duke De Lorca, he was a very ambitious minister with a hand of steel... "I'm Spain!, he expressed once... His declaration remembered me Vincent Price in "The Three Musketeers," when he states, in his role of Cardinal Richelieu, "I'm France!"

The duel between De Lorca ("I warned you, Señor, this time I shall cut deeply.") and Don Juan ("This time, I'm wearing my old clothes.") is exciting and stylish...

With humorous moments displayed by the sympathetic dwarf actor Jerry Austin (Don Sebastian) and with a splendid exhibition of young swordsmen, lovely ladies, secret plots, drinking escapades, swords clashing, furious fights, and with a great complementary score by Max Steiner, "The Adventures of Don Juan" is a great entertaining swashbuckler, highly recommended...

Fencing-dominated Flynn semi-historical costume drama, with minimal real romance.
Errol Flynn, having played the long beloved mythical rascal-hero Robin Hood a decade earlier, here plays another centuries-old mythical rascal-hero: the legendary seducer of women: Don Juan, albeit in his mature years, when he was ready to curtail his lustful adventures for more practical pursuits. This screenplay is scripted in a historical setting of very early 17th century London and Spain, shortly before the death of Queen Elizabeth. Phillip III(Romney Brent) is king and his Hapsburg wife Margaret(Viveca Lindfors) is queen of Spain. The chief villain is Duke de Lorca(Robert Douglas): chief minister of the Spanish court, supported by Don Rodrogo(Douglas Kennedy) and Alvarez(Raymond Burr), chief of the palace guard. The duke clearly plans to transform the royal couple into puppets so that he can carry out his plans for Spain. Since the queen refuses to cooperate, he is preparing to execute her near the film's ending.

In the film, Philip is portrayed as a weak-minded king, dominated by his rather estranged queen and de Lorca, who are at odds with each other over major policies. Clearly, de Lorca is a stand in for the historic Duke of Lerma. Although there is often a measure of historical truth to the characterizations in the film, mostly, they are quite distorted versions of the historical persons they are based upon. The historical king and queen actually got on very well, for the most part: well enough to produce 8 children during the queen's short life(She died during childbirth at only 26). With at least some of these young children, the historic queen wouldn't likely be thinking of abandoning her position and running off with Don Juan, as she briefly fantasized. The Duke of Lerma was actually a good friend of the king, who willingly gave him his very powerful position within his administration. As in the film, the Duke was often at odds with the queen over financial policy. The queen influenced the king to provide financial aid to her native Holy Roman Empire, whereas the Duke wanted to use Spanish revenues only for Spanish purposes. In the film, this conflict is transformed into a conflict between using revenues to promote peace(queen's idea) vs. using it to built up the fleet in preparation for war(Duke's idea). Juan sides with the queen in this conflict.

This is the ultimate fencing-dominated film, culminating in the dramatic duel between Juan and de Lorca on the very long palace stairs. Much of it is practice, after the queen demands that Juan become the chief instructor for the royal fencing academy, to give him something useful to do to keep his mind off chasing pretty young things. In one scene, there is a mass choreography of fencing students: the fencing equivalent of a musical chorus dance. Juan engages in a number fencing duels or mock duels throughout the film.

For a film about a compulsive seducer of women, there is remarkably little real romance. The film begins with Juan climbing a balcony outside London to reach a lover. What ensues is cartoonish. He is soon chagrined to discover that she has a husband, who unexpectedly arrives, providing Juan's first dueling scene: really a mock duel, in which Flynn goes into his Robin Hood mode. He then lectures the husband about his inadequate attention paid to his wife. Juan and servant Leporello(Alan Hale) then make a fast getaway on horse, to be greeted by a palace patrol, expecting to meet a Spanish duke, coming to marry. Juan pretends he is this duke, thus is escorted to be introduced to the bride-to-be. A scandal ensues when the real duke arrives to find Juan and the lady alone in a room.... Later, while a fencing instructor, one of the court ladies makes an obvious pass at him, which he reluctantly follows up. Again, he discovers she is to be married the next day, her husband showing up to creating another scandal... The final scandal is when the Queen and Juan discover they love each other, heightened by Juan saving the Queen from de Lorca's planned execution. She even talks of running off with him, but Juan says her duty to Spain is more important than their love. An in joke is that in the final frames, Juan decides to chase after a coach containing Flynn's then wife, having vowed to abstain from chasing women.

Obviously, the screen play exploits Flynn's reputation as a compulsive skirt chaser. Also, clearly, much expense was put into the elaborate costumes and sets. Max Steiner, taking over from Wolfgang Korngold as the traditional composer for Flynn films, did a fine job. Actually, I believe the film would have fared much better at the box office, if it had been made into at least a semi-musical.

The film was not a box-office success in the US, although it did better in Europe. Hence, the Warner budgets for future Flynn films were slashed. Flynn still looked and acted relatively youthful at age 39. As he turned 40 or so, his drug excesses would show up much more clearly in his looks and performances. However, he wasn't quite done swashbuckling. For example, he starred in yet another sea pirate film: "Against All Flags", 4 years later, where he, perhaps with the aid of doubles, engages in several ferocious duels, clearly laboring where formerly he made it look easy.

This same year, MGM released another classic tale of swordplay and romance in "The Three Musketeers", starring Gene Kelly.

My second favorite movie of all
If you love swashbucklers, period movies, buddy movies, or Errol Flynn, you must love this movie. For swashbuckling, you have a series of wonderful fight scenes, each one convincing, each one a delight. For period movies, the costumes are excellent and the history just accurate enough to be useful, but not so accurate as to be dull. Flynn and Hale are perfectly matched foils here, with Hale getting some of the wittiest lines in the movie. And this is Flynn's perfect part, still ladykiller enough to carry off the love scenes, still fit enough to persuade as the great duellist. Watch it.

Costumes and swords
I'll admit that I can't be the most fair judge of this movie. I'm a fencing instructor and so I'm pre-disposed to enjoy sword fighting movies. But, a movie where the romantic lead becomes a fencing instructor?? OK, you had me at 'hello.'

Beyond that, every person who appears on-screen has the best costumes you'll ever see. In re-viewings of this film, my wife and I spend whole scenes saying, "I'd look good in that," or "That outfit would suit you." And we're talking about Renaissance fashion!

So, you have sword fights, romance and period drama all at once. If any one of those sounds good you, you'll like this film.

I really liked it, and I wasn't expecting to
Errol Flynn is back in swashbuckling costume eight years after the excellent "The Sea Hawk", and it feels like he never went away. I was expecting this film to be not that good, and I imagined Flynn as looking tired and puffy as a result of his wild lifestyle. However, I was pleasantly surprised. It's a wonderful piece of entertainment. Of course, the plot is really no different from any other swashbuckler, but it's still a heck of a lot of fun. Flynn is perfectly cast as Don Juan- really, who else can you picture but the Tasmanian Devil in the role? This film is about Don Juan in love, with his Queen (a suitably regal Viveca Lindfors), and putting his life on the line for Spain. Aside from the natural ageing process, and looking a little puffy around the face, Flynn is as attractive, charming and witty as ever. Alan Hale, his sidekick in many of his previous films, joins in again. He's Don Juan's loyal friend who keeps the horses under the boudoir window so Flynn can make a quick get-away if a jilted husband bearing a sword arrives. We even have Una O'Connor there, which makes us all sigh and remember Robin Hood. The Warners team do a great job in creating a fresh new swashbuckler for more cynical Post-War audiences (Flynn character is more knowing and sarcastic, but in a good way), whilst being an affectionate tribute AND send-up to the earlier great classics. I guess Warners capitalised on news of Flynn's rape trial and reports of his hedonistic lifestyle in creating this film. But Flynn seems to take it in good humour. The costumes, sets and colour are first rate, as is Max Steiner's stately score. And the last line is a classic!

The Don Patrol
You could look at it cynically and view Adventures of Don Juan as a career life support, seeing Errol Flynn going to back to doing what made him famous in the first place after a string of unsuccessful pictures at the box office but it is none the less Errol Flynn returning to do what he does best. Despite not having done a swashbuckler since The Sea Hawk in 1940, Adventures of Don Juan manages to recapture the magic of his earlier days in this very dialogue driven swashbuckler. Flynn's signs of ageing are increasingly apparent but considering his health and status as a star this would have been the final time Flynn could have headlined a big budget production such as this.

The Technicolor here doesn't have the striking vibrancy of The Adventures of Robin Hood but the beautiful, detailed backdrops and very large scale sets with immaculate attention to detail are superb. The only complaint I have production wise is the very obvious use of footage taken from The Adventures of Robin Hood which sticks out from the rest of a movie which was filmed a decade later. It's a shame they couldn't get Michael Curtiz to direct for one last Flynn adventure or Erich Wolfgang Korngold to do the music score, none the less Max Steiner's score does the job. I also previously knew Viveca Lindfors as the teacher from the 1985 comedy The Sure Thing. To see her 37 years earlier play a Spanish queen in the 17th century was such a contrasting role.

Unlike John Barrymore's take on Don Juan in 1926, Flynn's Don Juan uses the character's insatiable lust for woman for laughs rather than for tragedy (I doubt a film in tone of the Barrymore Don Juan could be made during the code era). Flynn's Don Juan is a charmer but with a tad buffoonery to him, who's love making antics threaten relations between England and Spain. However Flynn injects some John Barrymore into his performance with his manner of speaking, which it should then come as no surprise that Flynn would later portray Barrymore in Too Much, Too Soon. What is also taken over from the Barrymore Don Juan is the famous breathtaking epic dive down the stairs; and it does not disappoint.

The two villains in Adventures of Don Juan, the King of Spain (Romney Brent) and the Duke de Lorca (Robert Douglas) attempt to hatch a plan to build an armada in secret for world conquest and use shady tactics along the way such as abducting subjects by force for the navy. This was only a few years after the Second World War had ended and the memories of Hitler where still vivid in people's minds. Robert Douglas channels a bit of Basil Rathbone in his performance while the partnership between these two villains is the classic Emperor/Darth Vader set up; with one figure taking the public limelight and the other pulling the strings behind the scenes; as the Duke de Lorca puts it, "I have no desire to sit on a throne, I much prefer to stand behind it".

Flynn's Most Underrated Swashbuckler
A runaway success in Europe, Flynn's Don Juan did not do so well

in the U.S. Nevertheless it is one of his best pictures and

deserves to be better known. Vincent Sherman, the director, does

not quite give it the slam-bang Curtiz touch, but instead imparts an

old fashioned worldly-wise flavor that is right here. The plot is

absolutely unrelated to Warner Bros' 1926 "Don Juan" with John

Barrymore, an actor who has sometimes been compared with

Flynn and who was even impersonated by him once in "Too Much,

Too Soon". Anyway, Flynn and Alan Hale Sr. were born to play Don

Juan and Leporello, and the movie was barely made in time, a few

years before Hale died, and before Flynn deteriorated too much.

Slated for production as early as 1945, endless delays caused by

logistical problems (not least of which was Flynn's increasing

alcoholism), it finally emerged at the end of 1948. Sherman

deserves a great deal of credit for making it happen at all. It is

given a lavish treatment all round, and the set designers did

exemplary work, particularly a superb massive staircase just

made for epic fencing duels. Romney Brent is spot on as the

befuddled king, and Robert Douglas is almost too velvety a villain;

what other color than black could he dress in? Viveca Lindfors,

who would later win a considerable reputation as an actress in

more serious Scandinavian movies, was at this stage merely an

ingenue for Warner Bros.; but she is for my money the greatest

leading lady Flynn ever had, stunningly beautiful and absolutely

credible in the part of an Austrian princess married to a pointless

king. Erich Korngold would likely have done the music had he not

given up on films and left Warners by the time this picture was

made; and his friend and compatriot Max Steiner has written a

score which is clearly a tribute to the Korngold style, and worthy of

both of them. Errol Flynn had a real knack for light comedy which

the studio seldom let him indulge fully; but swashbucklers and

screwball comedies are cousins under the skin, and here Flynn

found his real metier. Some of the best bits come early. One of his

inamorata complains "You've made love to so many women".

Without a beat of hesitation Juan replies, "Catherine. An artist may

paint a thousand canvases before achieving one work of art.

Would you deny a lover the same practice?" How many of you

male types out there could have come up with that line that fast?

Later on an irate husband says, "You're caught!" to which Juan

replies, "The Story of my life". Flynn was a limited actor, but within

those limits he was superb. Nobody had more grace, more

charm, more disillusioned humor. No man could enter or exit a

throne room with greater aplomb. Feminine friends of mine still

get a bit woozy over him, 38 years old as he was at the time. It's an

ideal marriage of an actor to a part.
