AFFAIRS OF CELLINI, THE
Fredric March plays Benvenuto Cellini, the Italian Renaissance artist renowned for his sculpture and goldsmithing, as well as his fiery temper and passionate love affairs. In Gregory La Cava's frothy costume drama, Cellini's designs on artist's model Angela (Fay Wray) put him in competition with his benefactor, the Duke of Florence (Frank Morgan, in an Oscar®-nominated performance), who also has his eye on the pretty maiden. Further complicating matters, Cellini is already involved in an affair with the Duke's wife, played by Constance Bennett. "Bawdy and breezy." – Ronald Bergan, "The United Artists Story." DIR Gregory La Cava; SCR Bess Meredyth, from the play "The Firebrand of Florence" by Edwin Justus Mayer; PROD Darryl F. Zanuck. U.S., 1934, b&w, 86 min. NOT RATED
