Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In this frontier spin on Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew, Joan Hackett guest-stars as Margarita, the fiery, sharp-tongued daughter of a Mexican nobleman (Jay Novello). Having frightened off most of her potential suitors, Margarita may never be married-a sorry state of affairs for younger sister Eleana (Susan Silo), who cannot be wed until Margarita takes a hustand. It is up to Adam Cartwright to play "Petruchio" to Margarita's "Kate". Also in the cast are Cesare Danova as Luis, Eugene Iglesias as Carlos and Valentin DeVargas as Manuel. Written by Suzanne Clauser (with no credit afforded the Bard of Avon!), "Woman of Fire" first aired on January 17, 1965.
