The best filmed version I've seen
17 July 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

It is a real pity that this film is not available on video. I was surprised to see how much of the staging of the battle scenes was re-used in BRAVEHEART years later. There are some striking sets and the soundtrack and lighting are well above average. Production design is of a very high standard. The direction is excellent; there is a mounting feeling of dread as the action progresses, with the Sleepwalking scene and Banquo's Ghost being particularly well done. The cast is very good. Judith Anderson reminded me of the Witch in SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARVES, and Maurice Evans is a suitably ambitious Macbeth. Watch for a breathtakingly handsome 28-year old Jeremy Brett as Prince Malcolm.
