HOLLYWOOD, April 17 — Now I ask you, who better than Errol Flynn could do “The Adventures of Don Juan” and have five feminine honeys, no less, fighting for his affections all through the movie? Not only is the picture on tap for Errol at Warners but John Taintor Foote has turned in the finished screenplay. About 12 or 15 years ago John Barrymore made “Don Juan” for Warners and before that it had been one of De Wolf Hopper’s stage successes. He also made a movie but that was when movies were flickers.

The high romance of the Spanish adventurer and great lover who lived in the 16th century will follow “Objective Burma” for Errol with Jerry Wald producing. Speaking of Errol, here is a little followup on his recent fisticuffs with Dan Topping: Dan went to Flynn’s house to tell him he was sorry and that it had all been a mistake. The boys are still friends.
