Casanova's Big Night

Film, Comedy
Laborious costume parody in which Hope, as a humble tailor induced to impersonate Casanova while the latter flees his creditors, mechanically gags his way through his usual role as a craven braggart. Worth watching mainly for the unusually strong supporting cast, which reads on down the credits to include John Carradine, Lon Chaney Jr, Primo Carnera and Raymond Burr.
