Shrew on the cattle drive
2 December 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Shakespeare's Taming Of The Shrew got a bit of retouching in this Rawhide story when the Gil Favor herd runs into married couple John Kerr and Roxanne Berard on the trail.

Kerr is the son of a rancher that Eric Fleming is supposed to pick up beef and supplies from and Berard is his new bride from Boston who has never been west before. She causes all kinds of trouble in true shrew style and Kerr puts up with it almost to the end.

This Rawhide story was a bit lighter than most and this series did not have too many comic relief episodes. Look for a nice performance from John Marley as a most civilized Indian.

Fans of the Bard and Rawhide will like this.
