DVR Alert

On Tuesday, 3 July, Turner Classic Movies airs The Adventures of Don Juan, starring Errol Flynn.

The past-his-prime Flynn makes a convincingly world-weary Don Juan caught up in the intrigues of the Spanish court. The final duel with the duque de Lorca is a great stage-fight.

As always, check you local listings for times.

  1. This was available on Netflix at one time. Sadly, I never finished it, but I was amazed to realize a scene of Don Juan escaping pursuit was actually stockmfootage from "The Adventures of Robin Hood!".

    Also, they borrowed the score for "Zorro the Gay Blade."

    1. I'd say you'd enjoy the ending - dueling on a grand scale.
