one time I agree with THE Bosely Crowther
This has been on my hit list forever!! I have a decent dvd copy from WB, a bit long in the tooth and colors a bit faded, I look forword to view it restored and fresh again!!! As mentioned preivously here the Steiner -Korngold paring is top knotch, with a well apointed cast, giving Flynn all the gass he needed to rock this theme to the hilt!! And charecter pal Alan Hale makes it just that much better!!

I'm Sure Don Juan will look Amazing on Bluray. WBArchive's The Three Musketeers (1948) looks Gorgeous ! :D Don Juan will look just as good. Maybe even Better ? :oops: If that's even possible. ;) That photo of Errol looks Great. Is that a photo from the New Bluray ?
Wish I could confirm - that photo is stunning! We know Mr F reads our comments PLEASE MR F how about a preview clip! This film will be stunning in a restoration!

I'm forever grateful that this wonderful movie got made. Errol Flynn hadn't appeared in a swashbuckler since "The Sea Hawk" eight years earlier. And Warners was already starting to seriously cut production budgets on most of its films. But somehow this lavish color spectacle got the green light. The results are exciting, entertaining and certainly eye-filling. The script combines playfulness and swirling action with a sense of the elegiac and Flynn displays a gracefully aged version of his legendary magnetism, laced with just the right amount of wistfulness. The star's onscreen chemistry with Viveca Lindfors is palpable and Robert Douglas makes a great villain ( I seem to recall him showing his contempt for the populace with a sneering remark along the lines of "Leaders may change but sheep remain sheep"). And among Flynn's many wonderful teamings with Alan Hale, this remains my very favorite. Every exchange between the two is marvelous.
In short, terrific news that "Adventures of Don Juan" is coming to Blu-ray. A lot of people who haven't seen it yet are going to fall in love with this picture.

First time I saw this GREAT film was when NY's old Channel 5 had the UA catalog showing all the Warners films this one was seen on a Sunday afternoon and gotta say loved it almost as much as Adv of Robin Hood -- this has a top cast too! A lot of them making their last film with Flynn. You know he gets a bad rap for his health but he had I think malaria and the effects lasted with him his entire life. Sad that his son passed so young maybe he could of had a film career too.

Big reason it was made the success of the reissue of Flynn's Robin Hood - Beckford love your well written thoughts!

That would have been last month, too. Mr. F. is working hard to get the machinery properly running again after an unfortunate breakdown.
Oh I know he is. I sent him a letter (thanks, Ron!) thanking him for his (and all the archive staff and MPI) hard work.

I was just curious if it was two releases or if there were more.

I’m not complaining, just being patient and curious.

One of the major three-strip goodies we've been waiting for... SCARAMOUCHE and PRISONER OF ZENDA are up ahead, hopefully. All hail the Warner Archive!
Scaramouche is one of the titles I want the most, & all these 3-strip Technicolor swashbucklers being released by Warner gives me high hopes :)
