Synopsis
The tragedy of a king so blinded by ambition and paranoia that he senselessly murders those in his path--eventually leading to his own demise. Macbeth encounters three prophesying witches on his journey home from battle. Macbeth's ambitions are kindled by the witches' prediction that he will someday be king. In an effort to hasten the prophecy, he and Lady Macbeth plot the murders of those in the way. Under the strain of the heinous crimes, Lady Macbeth dies, and Macbeth edges toward insanity. Macduff organizes a force to overthrow Macbeth. In the tragic climax, the two duel, Macbeth is killed, and King Duncan's eldest son, Malcolm, becomes king. Featuring Jeremy Brett as Macbeth and Piper Laurie as Lady Macbeth.
