Storyline

Casanova, a young patriot in 18th-century Sicily, upon learning that his father and sister have been murdered, returns to Palermo and engages in guerilla tactics against the forces of the Governor. Lady Bianca, the Governor's daughter, is in love with one of the patriots, Lorenzo, and desires to escape from the palace. Her lady-in-waiting, Zanetta, enlists the aid of Casanova and he rescues them and takes them to the partisan's camp. The rebels are victorious. Lady Bianca makes plans to marry Lorenzo, and Casanova and Zanetta have similar plans. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Trivia

The film was shot in Mexico. In an interview, Noreen Nash told how star Turhan Bey was dating actress Linda Christian during production. Apparently a former President of Mexico was also interested in Christian and didn't want any competition, because one day Bey went to producer Bryan Foy and told him that his life had been threatened and he had to get out of the country fast. So Foy had the script rewritten to have Bey's character killed off right away so Bey could get out of Mexico; that's why his character disappears so suddenly and Nash's character is seen crying about his unexpected death.

Don't Look for Historical Accuracy
12 April 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Don't look for historical accuracy, but this story of history's best-known self-confessed lover leading a rebellion against foreign tyranny in late 18th century Sicily has great sword play, romantic intrigue, good photography and a surprisingly big-budget look. Mexican actor Arturo Cordova is a smooth, athletic lead. American Lucille Bremert plays the feisty aristocrat who schemes to win his heart, and exotic Turhan Bey is the second lead who dies for love. The film is fun while you are watching it, but it is disappointing to learn that in 1973, when the movie allegedly took place, Casanova was a 68-year-old librarian living in Bohemia.
