Baba the Turk:

An Exploration of the Times and Troubles of Benvenuto Cellini by H. A. L. Craig
Produced by Douglas Cleverdon
The Terrible Wild Beast is the story, told in verse, songs, and roaring prose, of Benvenuto Cellini 's two-year imprisonment in the Castel St. Angelo in Rome. The reason why Cellini was there is still obscure-perhaps it was the alleged theft of the jewels of Pope Paul III; or perhaps the hatred of Paul's natural son Pier Luigi for the ' terrible,' boisterous, wild, vision-seeing goldsmith from Florence.
