Shakespeare Collection (5 DVD box set) - £8.95 delivered @ DVD.co.uk
Synopsis : Five features. In 'The Taming Of The Shrew' Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton star in this earthy, robust version of the classic Shakespeare comedy, which was director Franco Zeffirelli's first film. Michael York plays Lucentio, the young student who falls for comely Bianca (Natasha Pyne) and must recruit Petruchio (Burton) to wed her wild and violent older sister (Taylor) before their father will allow Bianca to entertain suitors. Watching two larger-than-life lovers like Burton and Taylor slug it out in their hilarious scenes of courtship is something even those with no fondness for Shakespeare can truly relish. Also includes: 'King Lear', 'Macbeth', 'Henry V', and 'Hamlet'.
