Adventures of Casanova

It portrays a fictional version of the story of Casanova, and was intended to capitalize on the success of the Errol Flynn film The Adventures of Don Juan which was released the same year after a long production process.[1] It is set in Sicily in the 1790s, with Casanova as a freedom fighter battling against the King's local governor Count de Brissac, who unknown to the monarch, is acting as a tyrant.
