These 8 pages of images represent Elizabeth Taylor's first scene as the titular shrew Katherina from William Shakespeare's play The Taming of the Shrew.  As you can see here, Petruchio's first impression of the difficult rich girl he had come to woo was listening at the front door while his future bride Katherina whips her younger sister Bianca's ass with a curtain rod.  Totally hot. Note his increasingly receptive reaction shots. 

Now, besides just being an ass whipper, Katherina has a couple of obvious points of resentment against her younger sister Bianca.  Mostly she's resentful because everybody likes nice Bianca better than her, especially Daddy. [Michael Hordern as Baptista]  On top of which, Bianca is ready to marry, but Daddy won't let her until somebody marries the shrew.  So now for Sis' sake, everyone is anxious to saddle the hatefully contented single Katherina with some, any old damned husband.  Oh yes, she's really going to get it...
