Franco Zeffirelli in The Taming of the Shrew

The Taming of the Shrew

1967 NR

Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton seem to be channeling the legendary dramas of their marriage in this boisterous and bawdy adaptation of William Shakespeare's classic comedy, directed by Franco Zeffirelli. A younger sister cannot wed until her older, shrewish sister Katharina (Taylor) marries first. Petruchio (Burton) is brought in to trick Katharina into wedlock, but the two fall in love despite their passionate bickering.
