[Discussing a 1928 stage production of "Macbeth" in which the scene design proved to be problematic]: [The settings] appeared to be huge packing boxes painted white and piled in different formations one on top of the other. These created chaos on the first "performance" in Philadelphia...when I tried to make my entrance in the battle scene and found every entrance blocked by these ghastly boxes. ...
Odd coincidence: In Macready's movie debut in Commandos Strike at Dawn
(1942), he plays a schoolteacher. His first lines include the words "I'm writing a novel myself." In his final movie, The Return of Count Yorga
(1971), - he portrays a professor. His final line is, "You haven't read my book!".
