Movie Info

    Did she know she would be forgotten? She holds her own and then some against Douglas Fairbanks in this first screen adaptation of Shakespeare's great couple comedy, even commanding enough sway to change the scales a little her way by the end. For 30 years Mary Pickford was the 1st lady of Hollywood cinema, but unfortunately, those were the years that silent films were the only ticket around. Nowadays if you Google the greatest film actresses of all time (and I did) her name does not even come up. This 1929 production, the early days of sound, show her competent enough indeed.

    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!
