Did You Know?


Herbert Beerbohm Tree had played Macbeth on the stage and was well known for it. He also liked to have everything go his way. Sir Herbert did not see why the cameramen had to keep moving the camera around, interrupting his dialogue. Also, he insisted on speaking all his words of dialogue verbatim from the play. Often, when sufficient footage was taken, the film would be removed from the camera and the cameraman would continue to crank away while Sir Herbert continued with his lines. Apparently, he never knew that he was wrenching his performance to an empty camera. See more »
