"If it were done": Olivier's Unrealized Film of *Macbeth*



A researcher in the Great Britain has unearthed the supposedly lost screenplay for a projected film version of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, which was to be directed by Sir Laurence Olivier, starring Olivier and his then-wife, Vivien Leigh. The couple had presented Macbeth on stage at Stratford-upon-Avon in 1955, but financing for the motion picture collapsed (as did the marriage).  For more of the story, visit Wheeler Winston Dixon's entry on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Frame by Frame blog:
