Lot Essay

The Adventures of Don Juan won the second Academy Award ever to be given for best costume design in a colour film. Errol Flynn was well known as a real-life Don Juan and his role in the film contained elements of self-spoofery. (See Thomas (Tony), Behlmer (Rudy) and McCarty (Clifford): Classic Film Scores for Errol Flynn).

The word Double inscribed on the label indicates that this costume was duplicated for the film, however the additional inscription of the star's name means that this was Errol Flynn's costume.
