Love is blind, fickle and true. Theseus, Duke of Athens, is going to marry Hyppolyta, Queen of the Amazons. Demetrius is engaged to Hermia, but Hermia loves Lysander. Helena loves Demetrius. Oberon and Titania, of the kingdom of fairies, have a slight quarrel about whether or not the boy Titania is raising will join Titania's band or Oberon's, so Oberon tries to get the boy from her by using some magic. Lysander and Hermina meet in the forest. Helena and Demetrius are there as well. There are actors practicing a play for the upcoming wedding of Theseus and Hippolyta. Due to some misunderstandings by Puck, the whole thing becomes a little bit more confused.

The special effects in "A Midsummer's Nights Dream" made in 1935 by Max Reinhard are a good 40 years ahead of their time. The lighting effects, over cuts, disappearing fairies, etc are many years ahead of 1935. The scene were a character's" turns into a donkey's head is incredible for its time. He becomes a talking donkey. Is this where years later they got the idea for Francis the talking mule & talking "Donkey" in Shrek . The talking donkey in Shrek bears a store resemblance to the donkey in A Mid Summer's Night's Dream". It is a Shakepearian movie staring the most unlike stars of the day, James Cagny, Olivia de Havilland, Richard Powell & Mickey Rooney. In fact, it was Rooney's movie debut. Rooney got rave revues as the character known as Puck.
