Some men shut their eyes and dream and some men open them and hope
Don Juan is a legend and known for traveling the word and seducing women. Generally, the women he seduces are married or engaged so his reputation is not held in high regard by his fellow Spanish countrymen. When Don is deported back to Spain, he is required to befriend the queen to clear his reputation and earn his freedom. The queen sends him on several tasks, one of which may save the country from a potential conqueror.

Vincent Sherman, director of Savage in the Orient, Lady of the House, A Fever in the Blood, Affair in Trinidad, and The Man Who Talked Too Much, delivers The Adventure of Don Juan. The storyline for this picture is very interesting and well paced. The action scenes are solid, the script is well written and well delivered, and the acting by Errol Flynn is awesome. The cast as a whole delivers solid performances and includes Flynn, Ann Rutherford, and Viveca Lindfors.
"You put it bluntly but with a certain degree of accuracy."
The Adventure of Don Juan is a film that I was inspired to see after viewing Black Swan, a similar swashbuckling picture that was released during this time period. The first Errol Flynn movie I ever saw was Green Light, which was greatly disappointing; however, this movie definitely righted that ship. I adored this movie from beginning to the end. This picture truly displayed Flynn's greatness and flare. I strongly recommend seeing this movie.
