Shakespeare Comedies: The Taming of the Shrew

1980 NR

John Cleese stars in Shakespeare's comedy about a spoiled brat who meets her match and her mate -- all rolled into one heck of a pugnacious package. Sweet-natured Bianca can't marry until her quick-tempered sister, Katherine, does. Intent on marrying Bianca, Lucentio assumes his servant's identity and poses as her tutor. Meanwhile, cantankerous Petruchio is convinced he can tame the shrewish older sister, marry her and inherit the family riches.
