- OSCAR WINNER:
- Best Costume Design
Errol Flynn (The Adventures of Robin Hood, Captain Blood) stars in this Oscar-winning swashbuckling yarn as the legendary lover who romances the queen and saves the country from treason.
In this later-career swashbuckler, Flynn is a warmer, wittier version of his earlier characters as he plays Don Juan, the Spanish lover who fights to save the Spanish queen (Viveca Lindfors) from the snares of the evil Duke de Lorca.
Co-starring Robert Douglas (Ivanhoe) and Alan Hale (It Happened One Night), this gorgeous production won the Academy Award for Costume Design.
