Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton sparkle and amuse as Katharina and Petruchio in William Shakespeare's comic look at male chauvinism and women's lib in the 16th century. Petruchio, a poverty-stricken gentleman from Verona, journeys to Padua in search of a wealthy wife. There, he encounters the fiery Katharina, a self-willed shrew who leads Petruchio on a merry chase before he successfully circumvents her attempts to avoid marriage. Their honeymoon becomes a humorous battle of wit and insult with Kate as determined to maintain her independence as Petruchio is to "tame" her. When the embattled couple returns to Padua, Kate helps Petruchio win a wager that his is the most obedient of wives. But in reality, the shrewish Kate has found a more effective way to dominate her mate.
Loved this growing up. It's a feel-good movie, heavy on the male chauvinism, but good for a rainy day.Published 6 days ago by Christy Townsend
My wife and I have seen this many times and really enjoy it. A very good way to introduce both classic movies and play-writing (William Shakespeare) to your family.Published 11 days ago by CopeIam

The movie was a rollicking romp. It was not particularly faithful to the dialog of the play, but was well-played as an action comedy. Read morePublished 18 days ago by Robert G Puzey
