French cabaret entertainer Georges Guetary, best remembered as Gene Kelly's romantic rival in An American in Paris, plays the title role in The Loves of Casanova. Most of the story concerns the Great Lover's migration from Venice to Paris in search of fame, fortune and fetching damsels. Every so often, Casanova serenades his lady fair with a robust song, indication enough that historical accuracy is not this film's strong suit. There seems to have been an attempt by the filmmakers to poke fun at the Sinatra craze in America, inasmuch as women tend to swoon at the sound of Casanova's voice. Except for the presence of Georges Guetary, whose film appearances were all too few, The Loves of Casanova is a draggy, pedestrian affair.
