One of the least impressive adaptations of Shakespeare, this does have it's good moments. The good points are the beautiful music and the hysterical performance by James Cagney as Bottom, a weaver who is turned into a donkey by the fairies of the wood. Others, like Mickey Rooney as the mischievous fairy Puck, get on your nerves after awhile. The film is still relatively faithful to the lightest comedy-fantasy Shakespeare ever wrote. It does have plenty of warm moments from Cagney. If for mere novelty alone, you should give it a try.
