Italy, 1757. Lowly tailor Pippo Popolino disguises himself as the great Casanova in order to romance attractive widow Francesca. He little suspects what he's getting into: locked into the incongruous role by the desperation of the real Casanova's creditors, Pippo must journey to Venice on a delicate mission far beyond his capabilities.

Vincent Price lost credit for his performance as the real Casanova when he was caught up in the McCarthy-era "Red Scare" hysteria that swept the US in the 1950s. See more »
When Pippo swoons from kissing Beatrice D'Brizzi, actress Joan Shawlee who plays Beatrice looks off-camera and smiles, breaking character, apparently amused over Bob Hope hamming up his swoon and ad libbing. See more »
What a treat to see Bob impersonate the greatest of all lovers-Casanova. This is a wonderfully entertaining movie which keeps you amused throughout the entire film.Basil Rathbone as usual up to top form. Did he ever play anything but a scoundrel in all his movies? There are so many highlights it is difficult to choose any favorites,but the best would be at the end of the movie when Hope as Casanova is to be executed and appeals to the movie audience to spare him ,is one of the funniest scenes ever done.Next time you go to the movies take some popcorn with you and we may be able to save Bob from a fate worse than death.
