I remember it because I own the DVD and every so often watch it. Its one
of those films I revisit now and then, like "Man for All Seasons".

The opening sequence is a classic, well described by Vincent Canby in
his review, bounding horses, women scurrying into the baths, glorious
score, magnificent Italian countryside(supposed to be). And a hilarious
comic turn by Michael Keaton as Dogberry.

Escapism writ large.
