A Midsummer Night's Dream

(Film - 1935)
A Midsummer Night's Dream
Two pairs of lovers remedy their problems with fairy help at midnight in the woods of Athens. One of the most ambitious projects undertaken by Warners in the 1930's, this production is the only sound film by Max Reinhardt who made the film with his disciple, William Dieterle. This adaptation of Shakespeare's play is characterized by sumptuous sets, soft photography and lighting designed to produce a romantic, magical quality. The ballet dream sequence was the collaborative effort of Reinhardt, the Ballet Mistress of the Paris Opera, Nijinsky and cinematographer Hal Mohr. (Does not circulate)
