Audience Reviews for The Private Life of Don Juan
In what could only be termed as serendipitous (for us), Douglas Fairbanks last film is that of playing ... a has been. Don Juan was once the scourge of his hometown, wooing and winning married women left and right, but returns after a long exile to discover his reputation has replaced him: the illusion of who he was now far more potent than he himself, more resonant. He seems to take it all quite well but here is one of the first superstars, American royalty, honestly facing, in story and in truth, the end of the line. And his cast and he, directed with nuanced shadings by Alexander Korva, deliver a romp more sophisticated than one might suppose considering the year of production. Very good stuff.
Not a great movie, nor one of fairbanks' best, but it's enjoyable and very funny, I liked it. The story is pretty good, but it could have been better.
