Audience Reviews for The Taming of the Shrew

I love the Taming of the Shrew story, it's so hilarious, and this movie was really good, the sixties one is good too. This one has Fairbanks and Pickford as the main characters, and they were good together, but I had a hard time believing that Pickford was so mean, she always seems nice to me. Other than that, the movie is really funny, and I enjoyed it. Plus it's a talkie!
