The Trevor Nunn Macbeth with Ian McKellen and Judi Dench is the best
available, despite the inadequacy of the two leads.  It can be purchased
from a variety of outlets for $19.95.  The Stratford Festival of Ontario
sells a videotape of its stage version of Errors; I don't remember the
price, but it is less than the $90-100 required for the BBC version.
You won't find Roger Daltrey in it (deo gracia), but it's pleasant
enough.

The VHS version available to consumers is unfortunately pan and scan.
BRAVO, however, from time to time runs a letterboxed version of the film
which I was lucky enough to copy . . . for scholarly pursuits that I
hope would fall under the protection of fair use.  You might also try to
get TCM to run the film in letterbox format.  That cable network does
take requests, but its metier usually is older films.
