During the set up of the gruesome death scene of Lady MacDuff's children, director Roman Polanski was instructing a four-year-old blonde girl on how to play dead, while smearing fake blood all over her body. Polanski playfully asked the girl what her name was, to which she replied "Sharon." See more »
When first meeting the witches, Macbeth follows them asking further questions as to their prophecies.One shot shows him nearing the witches as they each hurry down a small set of stairs, the youngest witch flashes herself at Macbeth and we see an angle change to see her hurry down the same steps and Macbeth directly behind her in the shot. the scene changes to show Macbeth standing in the same position as when the young witch flashed herself at him.

one of the mightiest adaptations from Shakespeare's :p
Vehement and inch-perfect approach of Roman Polanski towards Shakespeare's greatest play "Macbeth". Polanski's absolute narrative technique and profound direction set the heinous deed of Macbeth and his tragic fate with elegance.
He brilliantly represents all Shakespearean symbols on the screen--- especially the floating "dagger", apparitions in the witches' den. Jon Finch powerfully portrays the downfall of Macbeth while Annis appears vivid struggling with her greed and conscience. Vibrantly, one of the mightiest adaptations from Shakespeare's :p
