Many films, TV movies and TV mini-series are named for and based on that person. The best known are Fellini's 1976 film, [[Film/{{Casanova}} the 2005 film]] starring HeathLedger, and [[Series/{{Casanova}} the 2005 BBC drama mini-series]] starring Creator/DavidTennant. The latter is considered one of the more faithful adaptations of Casanova's memoirs, while Fellini's... wasn't.

* ErrolFlynn. He was such an accomplished and charming seducer that when he got into legal trouble in the early 1940's about having an affair with a teenager, he not only charmed the mostly-female jury into acquitting him, but ended up marrying the L.A. country sheriff's daughter, who was running a concession stand in the courthouse during the trial. The slang expression "in like Flynn" reportedly was coined as a result of that particular scandal. (This can also rate as an expression of ValuesDissonance, in that Flynn would probably have had his career wrecked today, charm or no charm.)\\\
