“THEY’LL TAP INTO YOUR LAP!” Howard Keel and Kathryn Grayson star as once-married Broadway stars, reunited for a tempestuous play-within-the-movie staging of The Taming of the Shrew, in MGM's high-spirited movie version of the Cole Porter classic - a song-and-dance feast featuring the dynamic talents of Ann Miller (tapping her heart out), Bobby Van, Tommy Rall, Carol Haney and the fabulous young Bob Fosse. The eye-popping, show-stopping musical numbers include Too Darn HotTom, Dick and Harry and the Fosse-choreographed From This Moment On, which Pauline Kael calls "one of the high points of movie-musical history."


"Literate, witty and thoroughly of the best and most neatly plotted musicals of the decade... every song a show stopper."
— Clive Hirschhorn, The Hollywood Musical
