Warner Bros. Pictures
"Kiss Me Kate" (1953)
George Sidney directed this rollicking version of the Cole Porter Broadway hit about divorced theater stars (Kathryn Grayson and Howard Keel) playing Katherine and Petruccio in a Broadway-bound musical adaptation of "The Taming of the Shrew."
"It has a few gimmicks cut into it, but it's not a gimmick film," Joseph says.
Though most reference books state that "Kiss Me Kate" had a limited 3-D release, that isn't true, even though "it did not show in 3-D at Radio City Music Hall. It showed flat there," Joseph says.
"But actually, it had the largest 3-D print run that Technicolor did up to that time. It was a huge print release -- 250 -- that's a lot."
