Abstract:

This is an intriguing mix of art and kitsch, of European sensibility - Reinhardt's overall conception and design - and a Hollywood studio's pursuit of prestige through the popularisation of a great work. The production design, photography, special effects, music and choreography are impressive and often combine for memorably magical effect. The all-star cast is more contentious although there is general if not universal agreement about the success of the comic parts - Cagney as Bottom, Joe E. Brown as Flute, Rooney as Puck, Hugh Herbert as Snout - and of Victor Jory as the saturnine Oberon.
