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.Written by

A good all-star cast in a very cute comedy film about, who else, the great lover Casanova! Bob Hope was as cute as can be as Pippo Popolino (aka Casanova's double). Casanova is actually played by the late great Vincent Price who was uncredited. Casanova ended up spending to much of his money and couldn't pay what he owed, so talked Pippo into taking over as himself which leads into some comical moments.
Casting is superb! Bob Hope, Raymond Burr, Vincent Price, Basil Rathbone, John Carradine & Lon Chaney are the real reasons to watch this film. Story is fun, nothing heavy here - just silly comedy. The film is eye-candy in sets and costuming with rich technicolor bringing this out! 7.5/10
