YMMV: Kiss Me Kate
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: "Too Darn Hot," in the stage version.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny:
  • Fair for Its Day: The roles of Fred's and Lilli's personal assistants seem almost blatantly racist in hindsight, though they are still sympathetic—if underdeveloped—characters. On the other hand, back in the '40s you had people complaining that they got too much face-time, along with those scandalous act-opening numbers (Moral Guardians actually tried to ban "Too Darn Hot", and did at least succeed in transferring it to the white characters and toning down the lyrics for The Movie)...
  • Retroactive Recognition: Bob Fosse appeared as an actor in the film. He later gained fame as a choreographer beginning with The Pajama Game.
