A Midsummer Night's Dream

Charlie & Paulette attend the opening of Max Reinhardt’s stage production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Hollywood Bowl, September 1934.* Chaplin's friend and, later, biographer, R.J. Minney, is on his right. It was reported at the time that Chaplin was approached by Reinhardt to appear in the production, either in the role of Bottom or Puck. 


*Reinhardt directed a film version of the play the next year.
