Trivia

During filming of Oberon and Titania against a raining backdrop, one of the young men operating the hoses (to simulate rain) was so distracted by the nearly nude beauty of Judi Dench that he lost track of his hose, which blasted Ms. Dench and Ian Richardson into the adjacent lake, from which they had to be rescued by the crew.

Best Acting for any Midsummer Night's Dream adaptation
13 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

This rendition is somewhat 60ish but its my personal favorite. If you can set that aside, the acting is first rate and I think some of the best performances are delivered. Peter Hall's use of the hand-held camera keeps the movie very interesting and constantly moving.

The cast is unmatched in any other Midsummer production with Diana Rigg, Ian Richardson, and Judi Dench. My favorite is Ian Holm's rendition of Puck ... truly memorable. Paul Rodgers is also stellar as Bottom and is certainly the best Pyramus and Thisbee ive seen in any of the renditions.
