Brutish, fortune-hunting scoundrel Petruchio tames his wealthy, shrewish wife, Katharina.
In his memoirs, Franco Zeffirelli said that making this film was the most fun he had in his entire career.
Am I not wise?
Katherina: Enough to keep you - warm!
Petruchio: Marry, so I mean, to warm me, in thy bed. Oh, and will you, nill you, I will marry you.
When Petruchio arrives on a horse for his wedding, a security guard dressed in black is seen in the background.
Instead of the screen credit "The End" appearing at the end of the film, the line "God give you goodnight" appears, after which the rest of the closing credits are seen.
70 mm and some 35 mm film prints feature an overture before the start of the film with a purple flower background and white words on it reading "OVERTURE" (this is not included on non-letterboxed video prints). This overture can be heard on letterboxed video prints on LD, DVD and some broadcast editions, including Turner Classic Movies.
