Midsummer Night's Dream, A
Love is blind, fickle and true. And under the sway of capricious fairies it becomes blinder (a queen romances a donkey), more fickle (best friends swoon over each other's beaux) and truest of all (lovers repledge their devotion). Lord, what fools these mortals be!" in Shakespeare's bewitching comedy. James Cagney, screen-debuting Olivia de Havilland, Dick Powell, Joe E. Brown, Mickey Rooney and others play these mortals and immortals in this double Academy Award winner. Theatrical legend Max Reinhardt and studio collaborators turn his famed Hollywood Bowl production into an exquisite movie, with Erich Wolfgang Korngold adapting the glorious Felix Mendelssohn score.
