Trivia

Interesting shot of a Boeing 247 taking off. This was superannuated by 1941. The first modern airliner, it entered service with United Air Lines just before the far superior Douglas DC-3 revolutionized air travel. This was Boeing's last attempt at a commercial airliner until after WW2. See more »

Taming of the Shrew goes Country
23 December 1999 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

This fun film is a western version of "The Taming of the Shrew," with the Shrew in question being the glorious, yet underrated Mary Beth Hughes, queen of the bitchy blonde B-girls. George Montgomery makes a pleasant enough leading man, but let's face it, the main reason to watch is Mary Beth's pouty lips, hands on hips, and diva like attitude.
