Description
(Winner of 2 Academy Awards/Best Cinematography and Film Editing; Nominated for 2 Additional Academy Awards/Best Picture and Best Director) Hal Mohr's magical cinematography for this 1935 version of Shakespeare's comedy about royals, "rude mechanicals," fairies, and mixed-up lovers won an Oscar—the only one ever awarded on a write-in vote. The film also won for its film editing, and was nominated for Best Picture and Best Director (and was Max Reinhardt's only sound film). Olivia de Havilland made her film debut as Hermia, while James Cagney led the working-class contingent as Bottom. Felix Mendelssohn's music is adapted here by Erich Wolfgang Korngold, while the enchanting dance numbers are choreographed by Bronislava Njinska. Extras include audio commentary by film historian Scott MacQueen, premiere and behind-the-scenes footage, the original theatrical trailer, and more.

"The fantasy, the ballets of the Oberon and Titania cohorts, and the characters in the eerie sequences are convincing and illusion compelling.... Beautifully photographed and charmingly presented."—Variety
