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.

extraordinay rendition of a fascinating story
very high up indeed. the story itself is fasccinating an intensely thought provoking. the performers have got deep into their respective characters
for ideas and phiosophy - gibran's prophet and wanderer.
for performance - code of the woosters by wodehouse
towards the end where juan relates the types of people who tried to attract him and then rejected him and why
the ideas were so powerful that i listened to it twice in succeession
don juan's character, possibly because of hs nationality, has an accent that was not fully clear at times
