One similarity between Lady Macbeth and Daisy is that each enjoys great wealth and high social position as the result of marrying powerful men. Tom's wealth was legendary, even when he was in college. When she married Tom, Daisy lived with the opulent benefits of his money. In her marriage to Macbeth, Lady Macbeth enjoyed the honors accorded to the wife of a valiant general, and she enjoyed Macbeth's wealth. He was Thane of Glamis and became Thane of Cawdor, gaining control of vast estates. Eventually, Macbeth's rise to power made her Queen of Scotland.
Roman Polanski 's 1971 film version of Macbeth has similarities to Throne of Blood , in shots of characters setting down twisted roads, set design, and using music to identify locations and psychological conditions.  Toshiro Mifune’s death scene was the source of inspiration for Piper Laurie ’s death scene in the 1976 film Carrie , in which knives are thrown at her, in this case by character Carrie White using her psychic powers.  Kurosawa returned to adapting Shakespeare, this time choosing the play King Lear , for his 1985 film Ran , once again moving the setting to feudal Japan.
