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 
(www.filmpreservation.org).

It's well worth seeing.
