The quarrels of a husband and his ex-wife erupt on stage and threaten the performance of a musical version of Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew in this MGM version of Cole Porter’s Broadway musical. That it was originally filmed in 3D gives it a strange quality that enhances the play-within-a-film device and Ann Miller all but steals the film from Howard Keel in one of his best film roles.
