I'm not good with French, but it seems like there's a R2 French 3-disc edition for Macbeth. Amazon.fr: Macbeth - Édition Collector 3 DVD [inclus 1 livre de 80 pages]: Orson Welles,Jeanette Nolan,Dan O'Herlihy,Roddy McDowall,Edgar Barrier,Alan Napier: DVD

From what I can tell, it has...

- Both the 1948 theatrical cut and the restored Welles original cut
- Clip from Welles' 1936 all-black stage production "Voodoo Macbeth" (4 min)
- 1940 Mercury Theatre radio adaptation of Macbeth (I think it's this)
- Featurette on Welles and Shakespeare (13 min.)
- Featurette on the two versions (26 min.)
- Restoration featurette (13 min)
- Seems to have an 80 page booklet

Seems like a package Masters of Cinema should pick up.

Its a shame this title is currently locked up in the deathgrip of Lionsgate. I'd love to see a Criterion of it.

Oh hell.
Here I go again.

On second thought, l'll ask around for someone who speaks French because my little pocket translator never addresses the phrasing.
