I have seen the silent one with Mr. Barrymore only yesterday and it was okay. Barrymore was one of the best actors of the silent era for sure. Regarding the Technicolor one with Mr. Flynn, it was more interesting. Errol was a remarkable actor and could have done so much more. (I have seen this film three times already.) I thought the silent one was more focused on Don Juan from beginning to end, like the novel. Overall, I prefer the Errol Flynn one because it was more about Don Juan the lover AND hero. Instead of always chasing women around he actually helps save one. What one do you prefer? P.S. When will they show the one with Fairbanks anyways?
Wow a full evenings slate tomorrow with the original "King of Hollywood" Douglas Fairbanks Senior! Very impressed with the unexpected Prime-time TCM debut's and World Television Premiere's of THE GOOD BAD MAN with Bessie Love, and THE HALF-BREED with Alma Rubens! Both titles recently restored! In-fact, THE GOOD BAD MAN was restored just last year, and I am told looks pristine from those who have seen the movie at live screenings! Neither of these two extremely rare films have ever been released on home video in any format. In addition there is also a TCM Premiere of Fairbanks Two-Color Technicolor swashbuckler THE BLACK PIRATE (1926) with Billie Dove! A movie I have long wondered why TCM never seemed to run? PIRATE might have been scheduled at an earlier hour certainly, but at least it's finally on TCM! What's more, this could potentially be a new restoration from the BFI for all I know? Be sure to set your DVR's! Thank you so much TCM for this major surprise treat! A nice early Christmas gift the week before Thanksgiving! "Dem Male Folk Sure Is Pesky Critters!" Douglas Fairbanks and Bessie Love - "You Best Hightail It Straight Out 'O Dodge, City Slicker!!!" "Dashing Doug!" - Circa 1917
