Gregory LaCava was more adept at directing melodramas and screwball comedies than historical epics, such as this one.

Audience Reviews for The Affairs of Cellini


Although this movie is extremely silly, there are many laughs throughout.

Silly nonsense that has no true period feel for the 16th century but is played for a light tone. It's pleasant enough in that highly polished early 30's studio style. Frank Morgan plays his usual charmingly befuddled dunderhead.

I didn't have a great copy of this film to watch which always makes me somewhat distracted but my impression of the film is that this had promise without the impact that all those concerned would have liked. There are some truly funny moments but ultimately, we don't feel much attachment to the characters.
