Kiss Me Kate Reviews:

KISS ME KATE is quite easy one of the two most popular musical 'adaptations' of Shakespeare for the scene and screen (the another being WEST SIDE STORY). Focusing on a theatre company putting up a musical ver of 'The Taming of The Shrew', the movie traces the main relationship between director/leading boy Fred Graham (Howard Keel) and his ex-wife/leading lady Lilli Vanessi (Kathryn Grayson) as they respectively portray the Shakespearean roles of Petruchio and Katherine (the Shrew to be tamed, of course!). Throw in a deliciously naughty second lead actress Lois Lane (Ann Miller) and her gambling-addict beau Bill Calhoun (Tommy Rall), as well as a couple of gangsters (played brilliantly by Keenan Wynn and James Whitmore) mistakenly chasing after Fred 'sweetie' for Bill's recent debt, and opening night proves to be quite a large event, both onstage and off. Can the feuding Fred and Lilli, still in love with every another despite Fred's ego and Lilli's fiance, receive their act together before the curtain goes down on the play? I have to tell that I thoroughly enjoyed this film... yes, even having already seen the London scene ver of the musical earlier this year. There are, of course, private reasons that bias me towards the movie and to perhaps set out watching it with each intention of liking it (which surely helps!). First of all, I have no qualms in admitting I'm probably the largest Ann Miller fanatic there is, and there's no doubting also that KISS ME KATE is possibly the greatest showcase of her talents and beauty there is. Secondly, I've been listening to the movie soundtrack on constant repeat for months now, influenced by an interest kindled by the musical and discovering Miller. It supports that I can sing along to most of the songs and know the lyrics--no struggling to figure out what Grayson is singing in her operatic voice, and no attempting to acclimatise to fresh tunes. I already know the Cole Porter music, from lyrics to tune to score, and love it. So yes, perhaps I *was* predisposed to loving this film--how should I *not*, particularly with Miller dancing and singing my favorite songs in the film?Still, I firmly trust that there's a lot more to suggest KISS ME KATE than the ravings of a fangirl. Cole Porter really outdoes himself here with a toe-tappingly catchy score: even songs like 'I've Come To Wive It Wealthily In Padua' and 'We Launch In Venice' have the same sparkling lyrics, the same ability to catch the ear as the better-known 'Wunderbar' and 'From This Moment On'. Then there's the jazz-influenced 'Too Darn Hot' and the sweet ballad 'Why Can't You Behave?'. I honestly trust that Porter's score for KISS ME KATE is better than the one he wrote for HIGH SOCIETY, because he makes fine test of reprisals and bridges. Take for example Rall singing a short reprisal of Miller's 'Why Can't You Behave?' back to her before she replies with a unbelievable segue into 'Always Real To You In My Fashion'--the reprisal marks the couple and the relationship and works wonderfully well.Of course, it supports also that the cast for KISS ME KATE is really most impressive. Keel, with his large large voice and untrained natural talent, fills the screen (and his tights!) with his masculine presence. He struts, swaggers, and yet shows his vulnerable side believably enough to create us *like* his character, ego or no ego. Grayson, so much weaker vs Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra in ANCHORS AWEIGH a decade earlier, really comes into her own here--she's perfect as Lilli, swooning at the right moments, strident during the rest, and now bites out 'I Hate Men' with conviction... you certainly wouldn't imagine it possible of the actress who gave us the rather simpering Aunt Susie in the aforementioned Kelly/Sinatra film! I'm also partial to Tommy Rall, whose soaring athletic ability just crackles off the screen. It's such a thrill to see Miller receive matched with someone who can dance circles around most everyone else alongside her. They create the cutest couple in their two numbers together, with the energetic, exuberant dance to 'Why Can't You Behave?' definitely making one of my favorite movie dance routines of all time.This movie is, of course, Miller's shining moment--a shame, considering she's still only second lead and yet really steals the movie with her dancing and singing. I can understand why another reviewers don't like that the song 'Too Darn Hot' became a solo for her, but what works on the stage, quite frankly, won't have made it in the film. (Even in the musical I thought the song a rather inauspicious and irrelevant begin to the second act.) Miller's 'Too Darn Hot' fandance tap is precisely what the game suggests, and the charm she everytime radiates in all her tiny roles sizzles through her sexy fringed costume and black lace fanatic as she dances all over the furniture. One of my favorite songs is also the *unbelievably* catchy 'Tom, Dick & Harry', and the ver in the movie is nice fun.The directing by George Sidney is solid, making the greatest of the choreography. Any apparently odd choices would have to be explained by the fact that the movie was originally filmed in 3-D--imagine Miller's gloves and necklace flying into your lap, or the objects on the tavern table ruining off the screen when Grayson sweeps them off (while despising men, of course!). I really want I should have the possibility to see this movie the method it was meant to be seen, in 3-D. Unfortunately, there's no method to receive that result on VHS and probably not DVD either.Even so, KISS ME KATE is bright, splashy, flashy and colourful. It's breathtakingly satisfied eye-candy and drags only at a several moments when non-Shakespearean dialogue gets in the way. Considering the cleverness of its idea (it's a movie about the staging of a musical ver of the Shakespearean play), the movie has tiny to no artistic pretension--in this way, it's a quintessential MGM musical... set, geared, intended to *entertain*. And entertain it does. With the vocal talents of Keel and Grayson, the wonderful tapping of Miller and the soaring of Rall, all accompanied by an irresistible Porter score, let's hope this one makes it to DVD; it's definitely a keeper!


This is my favourite musical, not for the dancing alone, but it is the best. The dancers, not just Ann Miller and Rall, but Bob Fosse, Bobby Van, and Carol Haney!! What more should any dance fanatic want? There is everytime something fresh to see, no matter how many times you have watched it. The lyrics are magnificent, tricky and intriguing. When Howard Keel, dressed in those superb tights, sings about all the girls he has known, he's a knockout. Grayson is not my favourite actress, but she can sing, and she and Keel create a unbelievable pair. I will admit that the melody is great, but folks, catch the dancing!! The final dance number with the six dancers is superb, but how can you watch all six at once? You have to watch it few times, particularly the pair of Carol Haney and Bob Fosse.


Kiss Me, Kate was first released at the time that the film screens were exploading into huge formats to receive folks away from their T.V. sets and back into the theaters, and 3-D movies came out of hiding and the only musical movie to be shot in the 3-D format was Kiss Me, Kate, and stereophonic sound, to me, was better in those days than it is today, but the movie gave everyone in it the possibility to do their finest work, but it's a shame that they will not release a 3-D Ver of this movie on Home Video. The distributors would create a fortune!Everyone knows the plot of Kiss Me, Kate, so there's no sense in going into that. Kathryn Grayson, Hollywood's finest singer of all time replaced Patricia Morrison who played Lilli on Broadway, and Howard Keel replaced Alfred Drake who played Fred Graham on Broadway, and Ann Miller replaced Lisa Kirk who played Lois on Broadway, and it's not too well known but Lisa Kirk dubbed Everything's Coming Up Roses for Rosalind Russell in the film ver of Gypsy!Tommy Rall who replaced Harold Lang in the Broadway version, to me, was never given a fair possibility in Hollywood. An perfect singer and versatile dancer, but still he shines in his work in Kiss Me, Kate and for his work in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers as the brother Frank who got upset when he was named by his true name.This film is a nice example as to why Broadway stars are not necessarily nice for repeating their Broadway roles on the screen. The cast in this film is perfect in their acting, singing and dancing and I can not picture the Broadway cast repeating their roles in the film version. To me, it just wouldn't work!Casting Ann Miller in the role of Lois Lane was a nice break for Ann Miller since she was everytime given roles in past films that showed her off as a gal who had an overly-obnoxious appetite for the opposite sex. This movie gave her a possibility to display her full range of talent which had in the past been overlooked, but what can a person tell about her number Too Darn Hot that burned up the screen and made Lilli [Kathryn Grayson] furious with her co-star Fred-er-rick Gray-ham [Howard Keel] to the mission that she named him a louse of scene in front of the cast in the play! She couldn't call him what Patricia Morrison named Alfred Drake in the Broadway enjoy because in those days the Hayes Office wouldn't let Kathryn Grayson to call Howard Keel a ba****d!Keenyn Wynn and James Whitmore played the comical gangsters that were to accumulate a marker from Howard Keel which was really signed by Tommy Rall and when they do their number Brush Up Your Shakespeare, it's hilarious. Not because Wynn can't sing and dance, he can, but because James Whitmore gave it all he could, but faked the number beautifully, and Whitmore had the nice sense never to perform in a musical ever again, but together they were perfect in their comedic performance as the gangsters in the film.So, you guys who distribute this film - give us guys and gals a break and release this in the original wide-screen 3-D ver with stereophonic sound and allow everyone see why:KISS ME KATE - IS "STILL" GREAT!
