Down-and-out Danny Alverez (John Garfield) gets lucky when he discovers he has inherited two vacant houses in a small seaside California town. His two friends, Pilon (Spencer Tracy) and Pablo (Akim Tamiroff), eagerly take advantage of the situation by moving into one of the homes. But when the house burns down, Pilon feels guilty and decides to help Danny get his life together and earn the affection of Dolores (Hedy Lamarr), a local woman with whom Danny is smitten.
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.
