Kiss Me Kate

A friend of mine graciously let me borrow the dvd of Kiss Me Kate after I pleaded with her long and hard to do so. Upon receiving the coveted prize, I glanced upon down, and found the following to be the cover:

I'm sorry, but this is just about the naughtiest film cover that I've ever seen! Look at how he smiles with fiendish glee at the prospect of giving that woman a smack bottom!

This film cover raises so many questions. Why is she being spanked? Why is he so happy about it? Is he really the woman's father, though he appears to be about the same age? If so, is administering the spanking an act of discipline? If so, again, why is he so happy about it?

Maybe this movie is nothing like what I figured it was about. I'll report my findings after a thorough analysis...a very thorough analysis.

Yeah, that is the cover for the "unrated" version ;) just wait for the song "Too Darn Hot!"

I love this film. It is my earliest memory of a musical and I could never get enough of it.
Looking at the film cover though makes me feel as though I shouldn't have been watching it at such a young age. Obviously my parents were suckers.
