Orson Welles’ 1952 adaptation of the Shakespeare tragedy—starring, of course, Orson Welles—belongs more to cinema than literature. Specifically, it’s a triumph of editing. Welles shot the movie piecemeal over a period of years, using whoever was available. A single cut can transverse months and continents.
