A 1963 comedy Western starring John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara, and loosely based on Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew. The film is notable, perhaps even infamous, for its two spanking scenes, in which mother and daughter are each paddled with coal shovels: the daughter by her suitor, the mother by her estranged husband. (Wikipedia)
The film also stars Yvonne De Carlo (The Ten Commandments, The Munsters), Stephanie Powers (Stagecoach), Chill Wills (Meet Me in St. Louis), Jerry Van Dyke (My Mother the Car), Edgar Buchanan (Petticoat Junction, Donovan's Reef), and Wayne's son Patrick Wayne (The Quiet Man, The Searchers).
Turn off Matlock and jumpstart the LaSalle! If Shakespeare, the stars, and the spanking scenes aren't enough, tickets are only $3.00! And, that includes a small soda and popcorn!
