I opened an archive on Roman Polanski’s Macbeth and it is fabulous

His version of Macbeth was gorgeous.

Hugh Hefner footed the bill.

1971 was a good year.

All images sourced through the British Film Institute – no photographers were attached through my digging, and I am still trying to source them.
