"Not to be confused with the 1953 Kiss Me Kate - the big screen feature directed by George Sidney with assist from Bob Fosse - this 1958 television production actually constitutes a filmed version of the original stage play, loose adaptation of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew by Sam Spewack, Bella Spewack and Cole Porter. The cast includes the original Broadway stars too: Patricia Morison , Bill Hayes, Julie Wilson and Alfred Drake. George Schaefer served as producer and director, Franz Allers handled musical direction and Ernest Flatt did the choreography. This was originally telecast on November 20, 1958 as part of the Hallmark Hall of Fame showcase." - www.allmovie.com
