Where does Don Juan fit in the Flynn overview.
I’ve always found it to be lesser Flynn, with a few interesting action sequences, but in this new Archive release, the three-strip steps to the fore.
That noted, I’d love to see Warner do a new scan of The Master of Ballantrae, Mr. Flynn’s final Technicolor outing, a UK production, and the final film of William Keighley.
For Flynn and Three-strip collectors, without a doubt.
