Although we do not have a "Dutchess of Malfi" complete we do have this
intriguing (and old!) 27-minute b/w documentary from 1956:

Elizabethan Miscellany

Songs, dramatic readings and poems from "the golden age" of English letters
-- 1550-1625. The chosen material indicates the Elizabethan preoccupation
with love, death, and the new knowledge of the world that was sweeping
Europe. Performers include Ed Asner, Jacqueline Brookes, George Peppard,
Charron Follett, Betty Wilson, Paul Maynard, and Russell Oberlin.

Includes samples from "The Dutchess of Malfi" (Webster), "Shoemaker's Holiday
(Decker), "Doctor Faustus" (Marlowe), "Come Be With Me and Be My Love" and
The Book of Common Prayer.
