1921. USA. Directed by Robert Vignola. Based on a story by Frank R. Adams. With Marion Davies, Forrest Stanley. Although Davies is better known today for her costume epics, this updated edition of The Taming of the Shrew is far more typical of the films she made in New York. Joseph Urban's stylish production design may be the first appearance of European modernism in an American feature. Courtesy The Library of Congress. Silent, with musical accompaniment. Approx. 75 min.
