Macbeth is a live television adaptation of the William Shakespeare play. This Hallmark Hall of Fame production was directed by George Schaefer, and starred Maurice Evans and Dame Judith Anderson. Although it was telecast in color, it has been preserved on kinescope in black-and-white only.

In 1960, Evans and Anderson starred in a filmed made-for-television production of the play, also directed by Schaefer for the Hallmark Hall of Fame, but with an entirely different supporting cast. That production was filmed in color on location in Scotland, and was released theatrically in Europe.
