Prince of Lovers purports to be the filmed biography of hedonistic poet Lord Byron, here played by Howard Gaye. Little more than a pageant of Byron's many amours, the film looks more like a wax museum, with dozens of stuffy actors posing in elegant costumes. Surprisingly, the actresses playing the women in Lord Byron's life are not all that attractive, making one wonder what all the fuss was about. The most interesting characterization is delivered by Marjorie Day as Lady Caroline Lamb, the politician's wife who scandalized all of London via her unabashed illicit romance with His Lordship. This fascinating woman was later spotlighted in a 1973 biopic, which like Prince of Lovers was an exercise in boredom.
