Midsummer Night's Dream

Delightful TV version of the Bard's most fantastic romantic comedy starring Benny Hill, Anna Massey and Peter Wyngarde

Fantasy 1964 110 mins

Director: Joan Kemp-Welch


Originally shown on ITV on Midsummer Night 1964, this glittering production features an array of TV stars. Ambitiously mounted in a studio, the lovers, fairies and mechanicals wind their way through beautifully designed sets accompanied by balletic interludes and Mendelssohn's music. Massey and Wyngarde are electrifying fairy royalty and Benny Hill plays Bottom as a suitably silly West Country fool.
