Entertainment Reviews:

Total Film - 02/01/2001
"...The performances fizz with exuberance and physicality and there are a succession of impressive musical numbers..."
USA Today - 07/29/1994
"...Renowned as one of the best movies shot in 3-D and the springboard to Bob Fosse's choreography career..."

Description by

When two squabbling ex-marrieds are cast as squabbling Renaissance romantics in a musical The Taming of the Shrew, life imitates art, art imitates life - and it all proves no musical comedy imitates Kiss Me Kate, the backstage/onstage delight from the 1948 Broadway smash and featuring 14 peerless Cole Porter songs. Howard Keel and Kathryn Grayson are the tangled twosome so in love despite her "I hate men" flashpoints.

Product Description:

This Cole Porter hit based on the Shakespeare play "The Taming of the Shrew" features such hits as "So in Love" and "Always True to You in My Fashion." Academy Award Nominations: Best Scoring of a Musical Picture.

Plot Synopsis:

The divorced stars of a musical adaptation of Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shrew" find that their offstage romantic lives parallel their combative onstage ones.


Production Notes:

  • Shot in Anscocolor; prints by Technicolor.
  • The play was produced on the stage by Lemuel Ayers and Arnold Saint Subber.
  • The film was shot in 3-D, but theater owners at the time it was released had the option of choosing either the 3-D version, or the normal 2-D.
  • The film version of the musical play added one extra song "From This Moment On."
  • Vocal supervisor was Robert Tucker.
  • Bob Fosse, who later became an Academy Award-winning, Tony Award-Winning, Emmy Award-Winning director and choreographer, choreographed his own dance in the song "From this Moment On."
  • Jeanne Coyne, one of the "specialty dancers," became Gene Kelly's wife.
