“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” 1935
Directed By Max Reinhardt and William Dieterie
Music: Felix Mendelssohn / re-orchestrated by Erich Wolfgang Korngold.
“A Dream Comes True: The Making of An Unusual Motion Picture”
Promotional film about the making of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM – the Max Reinhardt film from 1935. This little film includes the only known footage of Erich Wolfgang Korngold playing the piano. It also manages to avoid showing any scenes with Shakespearean dialogue – Warner Brothers Studio was terrified it would put people off from seeing the film. Unique scenes of Reinhardt rehearsing and film of the Hollywood premiere on October 16 1935 complete this fascinating glimpse of movie history. (via BRENDANGCARROLL)
