There are a number of problems with this production of Shakespeare's classic comedy, but overall, it is a joy to watch. I have always loved the work that Olivia de Havilland has produced, but there are a number of time...展开s in this film where she literally screams lines that call for a bit more subtlety. Another problem at least in my mind is that the long ballet sequences lengthen the film unnecessarily. These flaws are easily overlooked though thanks to perhaps the best performance of the play "Pyramus and Thisbee" that I have ever seen. I never dreamed that Cagney and Joe E. Brown could make such an excellent comedic team.
