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.
