  • Director Roman Polanski's wife, actress Sharon Tate, was murdered by Charles Manson around the time of the making of the film. It is belived that due to this traumatic event, Polanski developed the story to be a more violent representation of Shakespeare's play. For instance, the scene in which Macbeth murders King Duncan was not in the original play and was instead implied.
