Movie Info

Benvenuto Cellini (Fredric March) is a goldsmith, artist, womanizer and swashbuckler known throughout Florence, Italy. When he enters the royal palace of the Medicis, he instantly has eyes for the Duchess of Florence (Constance Bennett), who openly returns his ardor. The dithering, dim-witted Duke (Frank Morgan) barely notices because he's too besotted with an airhead model (Fay Wray). However, when Cellini gets too cocky, he suddenly finds himself flirting with execution.

Critic Reviews for The Affairs of Cellini

All Critics (3) | Fresh (3)

  • The picture is really a sort of comic opera, all surprise entrances and sudden exits, flights of not too serious emotion and violent but amusing deaths.

  • It is so funny that you will probably have to see it twice, in order to catch the lines which were drowned out by your own raucous laughter the first time.

    May 31, 2019 | Full Review…
  • 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

  • Jul 11, 2013
    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.

    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.
