A Midsummer Night's Dream (1935) Poster

Alternate Versions

The original 132-minute roadshow version of this film has been restored, shown on cable, and issued on videocassette and DVD. For many years, though, this film was shown only in its general release version, a 117-minute version painstakingly edited by the studio (so that the cuts would not be noticeable), which shifted the order of some sequences and eliminated others.The 2007 DVD release also restores the Intermission title card, not seen since the film's original roadshow release in 1935, as well as including the overture and exit music.
The videocassette edition of this film was released in two editions - first, the general release version, which runs 117 minutes, then, in 1994, the 133-minute roadshow version without the pre-credits Overture, the intermission card, and the Exit Music played after the film itself ends.
The print shown on Turner Classic Movies, and which is in the Turner Library, has an overture and exit music by Mendelssohn. It adds 9 minutes to the running time of the actual movie.
