Swashbuckling Flynn, who swaggered his way through Captain Blood, The Adventures of Robin Hood, and The Sea Hawk, is at his best in this tongue-in-cheek parody of his own romantic image. Set in 17th-century Spain, this version has a reformed Don Juan wooing Queen Margaret, much to the dismay of King Phillip II and his sinister minister, the Duke de Lorca. Max Steiner’s energetic music complements the lavish sets and light-hearted mood of what was Flynn’s last big-budget film appearance. Special guests and Hollywood composers John Morgan and Bill Stromberg will share their tales of restoring and rerecording this classic score.
