Liz and Dick (a.k.a. Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton) almost seemed to be importing the psychodramas of their marriage into this 1967 film (of course, the same was true of every film they made together). Adapted from Shakespeare's play and directed by Franco Zeffirelli (Romeo and Juliet) with his usual eye for sumptuousness, this version of Taming features a particularly boisterous, bawdy, fun performance by its stars. Composer Nino Rota--best known for scoring several of Fellini's best-known works--received a National Board of Reviews award for his vivid soundtrack. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Wasn't the version I was looking for. Don't even know how to find it.Published 13 months ago by Laura Filipek
This older film stands up very well. Zefferelli's usual energy and brilliant colour support the cast. Burton is delightful as Petruchio and Taylor made a touching Kate. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Gayle Gibson
This dvd is exactly what I wanted it to be! It is in excellent condition. My only problem is that it took too long to get to me. I have never had to wait this amount of time!!!Published 19 months ago by Pyretta
Ive seen many versions but this one is the best one. Was it acting for Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton or a reflection of their own tomultuos relationship?Published 20 months ago by Nancy walpole
