A married couple can't separate their real lives from their stage roles in this musical-comedy screen adaptation of Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew," based on Cole Porter's Broadway show. Bob Fosse bursts from the screen--particularly if you see the 3-D version--when he does his dance number.

Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 2.0 4.0

Kiss Me Kate released in 1953 in a 3-D format. The film has a running time of 110 minutes. Kathryn Grayson (star as Lilli Vanessi), Howard Keel (star as Fred Graham) and Ann Miller (star as Lois Lane) star in Kiss Me Kate. Lilli and Fred are the main actors of a musical version of The Taming of the Shrew. Many things go not as planned on opening night. For example, a fight threatens the production, also two thugs are here to collect money and refuse to leave until they receive the cash. Will the rest of the night get any better?
