This movie contains mild innuendo which is taken verbatim from Shakespeare’s play.
There is one scene in which Petruchio is laying over Kat holding her arms down. It is implied she is resisting but then consents to sex. It is not meant to be graphic but comedic.
No actual sex or nudity of any kind.


Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


While filming the Berlin spy film, the famous Italian opera director Francoise ferrelli came to Dublin, giving Richard and Elizabeth the opportunity to make Shakespeare films.

“My agent came up with the idea of taming the shrew, which was made by Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford before. I think marcelomas chuani and Sophia Roland can play, but my agent insisted that I should consider British actors.

I knew I needed a couple with international star status, and then I realized that it could only be the Burtons, but I didn’t think they would be willing to work with a new director like me. My agent knew that Burton was eager to return to Shakespeare’s drama. He tried to arrange for me to meet the Burtons in Ireland. ”

Zeferelli witnessed the crazy life of the Burtons:

“I went to their hotel in Dublin. It was very chaotic.

Liz just got a baby monkey. It ran around wildly and finally hid in the hot water pipe in the bathroom. Liz’s maid had blood on her face, which was the place where the baby monkey had attacked, so she didn’t dare to come near it again.

Richard and I were talking. He turned his back to Liz. Liz shouted for him to come and help. He just drank wine and talked to me. Liz stormed out of the bathroom and said, ‘can you stop talking about damn Shakespeare and help me.’

He slammed down his glass and shouted at her, “can you stop fooling around with this terrible little monster and come and talk to this man. If you’re lucky, you can work with him. Do you think you can be better to him?”

She shouted, ‘I don’t care what he thinks of me. I just want someone to help me catch my baby monkey!’

I know they are Katrina and petruccio in taming the shrew. I think Richard will be absolutely interested, but I’m not sure if Elizabeth is also interested.

Then she said to me, ‘can you help me? I can’t get along with people who don’t like animals. ”

I told her I had a cat and a dog. Then I followed her into the bathroom and saw the frightened baby monkey. It’s too tired, so I wrap my hand in a towel. It’s not difficult at all, so I can reach it and grasp it without being scratched by it. I handed it to Liz, and it nestled in her arms. From that moment on, I became Elizabeth’s friend, and she will be my Katrina. ”

The idea that “taming the Shrew” could not be filmed until the end of March 1966 revived Richard. He told me, “I really wanted to make that film, so we gave up the film pay and only agreed to a percentage of the box office share.”

I said, “so is Elizabeth?”

“Yes,” he said with a wry smile, “I don’t think she ever thought she would make a movie for love.”
