Kiss Me Kate Review

Broadway stars perform Taming of the Shrew onstage -- and live it for real offstage. The theatrical antics are a bit forced and the musical numbers aren't the best in the history of musical cinema, but this still stands as an "important" film of its era, albeit a minor and relatively forgettable one.
