Woody Allen and Mia Farrow in A Midsummer Night’s Sex Comedy

Inspired by Ingmar Bergman’s 1955 Smiles of a Summer’s Night, the film focuses on a nutty inventor (Allen), his frustrated wife (Mary Steenburgen, Dirty Girl), a philosopher cousin (Jose Ferrer, Fedora), his much younger fiancée (Mia Farrow, making her first appearance in an Allen film), a randy doctor (Tony Roberts, Annie Hall), and a free-thinking nurse (Julie Hagerty, A Master Builder) – the possibilities, of course, are endless.

Gorgeous shot by the great Gordon Willis (Broadway Danny Rose), the film features a score by Felix Mendelssohn, which is featured in this Twilight Time release in an isolated score track.

As supplier Twilight Time prints up only 3,000 copies of each title, be sure to keep on the Twilight Time site or that of distributor Screen Archives for the July 29 prebook date!
