Macbeth (1948)

Macbeth

Classic film version of Shakespeare's play about a Scottish nobleman heavily influenced by his wife's lust for power. Dominated by actor/director/producer Orson Welles, both in terms of his screen presence and his departures from the text, the film was shot in just 23 days in the summer of 1947.
