Referring to the Hall production in the Shakespeare Centre library: it
is in black and white, although it may be a shortened version or
highlights from the show. It is not the same production by any means,
but an earlier "Midsummer" when Laughton was in the company playing
Bottom and Lear. It is set really in an Elizabethan house. Robert Hardy
plays Oberon, Mary Ure is
Titania, and Albert Finney is playing either Demetrius or Lysander (I
can't remember which.) It was directed by Peter Hall. (1962?)
