Summary
  • Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton sparkle and amuse as Katharina and Petruchio in this adaptation of William Shakespeare's comic look at male chauvinism and women's lib in 16th century Padua
  • Petruchio is a poverty-stricken gentleman from Verona who journeys to Padua in search of a wealthy wife. There he meets Katharina, a self-willed shrew who leads Petruchio on a merry chase before he successfully circumvents her attempts to avoid marriage. After the honeymoon, Kate helps Petruchio win a wager that he has the most obedient wife. In reality, Kate has found a more effective way to dominate her mate
