The Private Life of Don Juan

1934 NR

In his last performance, Douglas Fairbanks stars as an aging Don Juan who fakes his death to escape his own legend. Unfortunately, the mature lothario discovers that without fame, he has lost his famous powers of seduction. Now, he must beg his long-suffering wife, Dolores, to take him back. Director Alexander Korda punctures the Don Juan myth, focusing on his later years, when nobody believes he was once the celebrated lover.
