Storyline

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.

Trivia

When a tablecloth catches onto Pippo during his dance with Elena, all the far-end plates and glass goblets adhere to the tablecloth, obviously glued. It's much funnier this way than a floor covered realistically in broken glass. See more »

Goofs

Pippo is thrown off the balcony by The Real Casanova, and when he bounces on the cemented flagstones in the street, one of the flagstones bounces with him. See more »

Very funny
4 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

Haven't seen it in awhile, but recall it as being very quotable in a Monty Python sort of way...

(scene: prison cell) Bob Hope: "What time is it?" Prisoner: "Oh, around 1758."
