Peter Hall, 1968, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Act III, Scene 2: Diana Rigg & Helene Mirren

Hall totally rejects the prettified costuming and manners traditionally associated with Dream, farcically reflecting the muddy November landscape round Stratford-on-Avon where much of the film was shot - to the irritation of many viewers. However, this grotesquerie gave a greater veracity to the young lovers’ emotional gyrations.
