A Midsummer Night's Dream

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 beau) 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, sparklingly restored from original film elements. 'It has its fun and its haunting beauty. The play has been adapted with intelligence and affection'. - New York Times
