    Taming of the shrew 1967
    Taming of the shrew is a play about marriage and love. Katherina and Bianca are two sisters whose father is trying to find suitable husbands for them. Katherina, played by Elizabeth Taylor, gets married to Petruccio, played by Richard Burton, who must tame her to be a good wife.
    The story was very good and in depth. The way they spoke was very true to the original play. The actors that were used were very convincing.
    When they were out of town the background wasn’t very good, it looked fake, they should have shot in real locations. The scene where Petruccio was chasing Katherina and she was ripping stair railing was being torn in half and looked really light, it was over the top.
    This film was okay, I would recommend it to teenagers and adults that like Shakespeare.
