Publisher's Summary

The play Don Juan in Hell originated as Act 3, Scene 2, of Man and Superman and is a spirited debate between Heaven and Hell. It was written by Irish playwright and a master of social commentary George Bernard Shaw (1856 – 1950), who is probably most famous for Pygmalion amongst his 60 plays. Shaw was the only person to ever win a Nobel Prize in literature and an Oscar.

This famous performance features Charles Boyer as Don Juan, Charles Laughton as the Devil, Cedric Hardwicke as the Commander, and Agnes Moorehead as Doña Ana.

the ideas were so powerful that i listened to it twice in succeession

Any additional comments?

don juan's character, possibly because of hs nationality, has an accent that was not fully clear at times

BRILLIANT!

I ❤️ Bernard Shaw. Was Custodian of & lived at his home for 8 wonderful years. This is a superb production. Charles Boyer is excellent & as are the rest of players. Well done!
