Comment:        SHK 12.0294 Re: Macbeth on Film or TV

I'm glad Stuart Marger mentioned the Channel 4 broadcast of Doran's
Macbeth.  I was able to view the film a couple of weeks ago due to the
kindness of a friend in the U. K.  (Thanks again, P. R.)  I've been
meaning to ask list members who have seen both the film and the RSC
production on which it was based, if they will please comment on notable
differences and similarities between the two.

Please answer in any way you find interesting, but I'm particularly
anxious to know if the Porter was deliberately not funny on stage, and
did the weird sisters crawl out from under the table at the end of the
banquet scene.  Actually, I have a dozen questions, but those will make
a good start.

Thanks in advance,
Mike Jensen
