There are nearly three dozen major televised, theatrical and cinematic productions paying homage to this revision of the original tale of Don Juan. Playwright Jose Zorillo y Moral's work, was first written and published in 1844, and it soon became one of the most popular plays of the 19th Century. Spanish Director Alejando Perla's own 1952 cinematic version is probably the best-known of several films made concerning Zorillo's take on the exploits of the immortal Don Juan-in just a 15 year period, (starting in 1936). His version stands out because it focuses on why Don Juan Tenorio should repent, after reflecting on a hedonistic life of drinking, followed by his enchantment, seduction and ultimate corruption of the innocent and married women he seduced then callously abandoned all throughout Seville. Uniquely, Perla also hired famous Surrealist, painter, sculptor and Catalonian native, Salvadore Dali as its Set Decorator for this film.  Less
