Midsummer Madness - An Idiotic Idyll 1933

1 mins United Kingdom

Swim-suited and sprightly, four bright young things prance and dance their way through a mythical midsummer's love tryst in this bizarre and beguiling work of amateur fiction. The actors - who play a tree-nymph, a wood-sprite, an archer and a club-wielding aggressor - are clearly having a whale of a time and were probably friends of the filmmaker, Harold Street, an accountant from Birmingham.
