George Sidney's terrific film adaptation of the popular Broadway musical (derived from Taming of the Shrew) underwent a lot of cleaning up from the Hays Office, which removed numerous suggestive lyrics and risque jokes. Even so, it's considered one of the most entertaining of the vaunted MGM musicals and still enchants today. Although the cleverly shot 3-D version initially racked up stronger grosses, the film played the majority of its major dates, including Radio City Music Hall, in 2D.

my friends were surprised that when we were talking about the movie, i told them that 4 people in the Robocop cast. Peter Weller and Ray Wise(S5) Paul McCrane(S6) and Kurtwood Smith(S7) all wound up of seasons of 24'
Wow, this Okko guy really needs to get a life. Such hurtful words...
. I don't watch Vertigo like any other movie...
Saw Vertigo for the first time when it was reissued in the '80s, as part of a batch of Hitchcock-owned titles that had been locked up in the vault for a couple of decades (also including Rope, The Trouble With Harry, The Man Who Knew Too Much and Rear Window). The film blew my everlovin' teenage mind at the time, and I've been lucky enough to see it in a theatre a few times since then, and it never fails to suck me into its descent into madness...
I just watched The Anderson Tapes on DVD last week. Sidney Lumet directing Jack Lemmon in Death Wish boggles my mind...
Truly a film both of and ahead of its time. It was a valedictory for Karloff, only a year or two before his passing...
