Plot Summary
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.
