The budget-constrained, stage-bound nature of Welles' production is often commented upon, and not always in a complimentary way. But that in itself is not problematic - the stylish set-design is one of the things I like about it. The problem is how inert it frequently feels. That's a filmmaking issue, not a fiscal one. And Welles was hugely skilled in many areas, but a convincing Scottish accent wasn't one of his talents.
