I got the restored "Macbeth" from Amazon.uk, it is region 2 and Pal and would not play in a region 1 player. Because so many of Welles' films are unavailable in region 1, I recommend getting a second player - I got a Cyberhome DVD player from Best Buy (about $40). It handles both NTSC & PAL and is easily hackable to make it play any region you want. I now can enjoy not only "Macbeth" but also "Chimes at Midnight", "The Immortal Story", "Confidential Report" and "Don Quixote". Hope this helps.
