Kiss Me Kate

Genre: Comedy, Romance, Musical; Starring: Brent Barrett, Kathryn Grayson, Howard Keel, Rachel York, Nancy Anderson, Bob Fosse, Ann Miller, James Whitmore, Keenan Wynn; Director: Michael Blakemore, George Sidney; Runtime (in minutes): 147; MPAA Rating: Unrated; Distributor: MGM/UA Home Video

Vibrant as color swatches in a paint-store catalog, these remastered videodisc of Kiss Me Kate bring out all the literal and thematic glitter MGM applied to films’ backstage-romance scenario. In Kiss Me Kate, an acerbic Taming of the Shrew rewrite, they don matching violent-red jumpsuits for some knockabout sparring set to Cole Porter songs. The circuitry in VCRs simply can’t render such strong, variegated hues and fine textures; only on disc is it clear how much these actors need meticulous games of make-believe to feel they’re in love.
