You might like to see "Destry Rides Again" first to see a similar satire of a western in black-and-white with a more realistic feel. This movie is a scathing and witty attack on the macho western and on the Cold War.
But if you are not interested in seeing what can be done with color, sets and costumes if one ignores realism, don't bother. The movie is an experiment in kinetic art and is fascinating for those who want to see what can be done with color, costumes and sets.
Again, the production numbers are fascinating if one wants to see how one can fill the screen with moving colors.
Part of the comedy comes from the fact that the movie is the reverse of The Taming of the Shrew. It is the Taming of the Macho Fool.
