Macbeth DVD Macbeth DVD
This fully restored release of Macbeth is the original version produced and directed by Orson Wells. In a bid for commerciality, the studio later trimmed the film by twenty minutes and redubbed the Scottish accents employed by Welles and his cast. This tampering with his work would come as no surprise to a director growing disillusioned with a Hollywood. From the ominous opening encounter with the witches to the fateful marching of Birnam wood to Dunsinane, Welles' captured the very essence of play. With typically expressive use of camera, lighting and sets bordering on the surreal, he created one of cinema's greatest adaptations of Shakespeare.
