Subject: Welles Voodoo Macbeth on DVD
Part of it, anyway. Film of the end of it (Macbeth fearing Birnam Wood
on) is at the end of a 15 minutes WPA film, We Work Again (1937). The
music sounds a lot like that heard on Flash Gordon serials. I don't know
if Orson Welles was involved in the film. There are no credits for the
film apart from the WPA, listed as producer.
It's on disc 3 of a 4 DVD set, Treasures from American Film Archive
It's well worth seeing.
