Een Don Juan tegen Wil en Dank
Een Don Juan tegen Wil en Dank ("A Don Juan despite himself") is a comedy by an anonymous author.
The original text
A reference to a successful performance of the play by a theatrical society called "Aurora" in Ameide, The Netherlands, on 29 January 1890 was found in the newspaper De Vijfheerenlanden of 2 February, 1890 - however no further details are given.
Translations and adaptations
A poster for the Flora Bioscoop in Middelburg, Netherlands, advertises a work by this Dutch title, starring the American actress Laura la Plante. However, this is alsmost certainly not a version of the play discussed here, but a reference to the American film God's Gift to Women by Michael Curtiz (1931), featuring La Plante and based on the 1930s play The Devil Was Sick by Jane Hinton.
