    Description

    Orson Welles' Costume from Macbeth. Like many of actor-filmmaker Orson Welles' works, his dark, stylized adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth was poorly received by audiences upon its initial release, but in the years since has become highly regarded. The movie was produced on a shoestring budget and filmed in a mere 23 days. In an interview with biographer and filmmaker Peter Bogdanovich, recounted in the book This Is Orson Welles, the legendary director said of the costuming: "... I looked like the Statue of Liberty in it." This lot features the three-piece costume worn by Welles in the movie, and includes pants, tunic, and cloak. In Excellent condition.
