TAMING OF THE SHREW
1929, United Artists, 63 min, USA, Dir: Sam Taylor

“America’s Sweetheart” may have seemed an unusual choice to play a fiery female, but the Mary Pickford-Douglas Fairbanks team proves unbeatable in this adaptation of the classic Shakespearean comedy - the first and last film the married couple starred in together. In 16th century Italy, the bold Petruchio (Fairbanks) rises to the challenge of wooing Katherine (Pickford), a woman whose headstrong ways have driven off all other suitors. The first sound version of the play on film, this version was originally shot as a silent film, with all the dialogue and sound effects added at a later stage.


Screening format: 35mm | Feature restored from Douglas Fairbank’s personal print by The Museum of Modern Art with support from the Celeste Bartos Fund for Film Preservation.
