SPEWACK, Samuel and Bella. Lyrics by Cole Porter
Kiss Me Kate: A Musical Play
Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1953. First edition. Unopened, spine a bit toned, the paper covered boards a little rubbed, very good without dustwrapper. Warmly Inscribed by Sam Spewack and Signed by both he and Bella Spewack. A popular musical play based on *The Taming of the Shrew*, basis for a number of films and television movies, originally directed by George Sidney in 1953 with Kathryn Grayson, Howard Keel, Ann Miller, Keenan Wynn, and Bob Fosse. Made just as Hollywood was trying to give television audiences a reason to return to theaters, it is reportedly the only film shot simultaneously in 3D, widescreen, and full frame versions, and consequently suffers a bit from performers repeatedly lunging themselves at the camera. Also of note is the 1968 television version directed by Paul Bogart with Robert Goulet and Carol Lawrence. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Between the Covers-Rare Books, Inc. ABAA [Gloucester City, NJ, U.S.A.]
