Movie Info

Max Reinhardt's legendary Hollywood Bowl production of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream was transferred to the screen by Warner Bros. in 1935. Like most of Shakespeare's comedies, the story contains several seemingly unrelated plotlines, all tied together by a single unifying event, in this instance the impending wedding of Theseus and Hippolyta. One story thread concerns the mistaken-identity romances of four young Athenians; another involves a group of "rude mechanicals" who plan to

...overdone, overproduced, overblown, overacted.... Shakespeare gets rather lost in the shuffle, but it's hard to deny the film isn't fun to watch.

Audience Reviews for A Midsummer Night's Dream

I absolutely hate overtures, and this movie has a long one! At least it doesn't have an intermission, though. I like Shakespeare, but I've never really been a fan of this story, it's really incredibly too silly, and not even that funny. What I did like was the actors and the beautiful sets and costumes. The only actor I didn't like was Rooney, he was so annoying, I couldn't stand him. Overall, a so-so movie, if you are a fan of the story, you will find it more interesting than I did.
