Based on “A Man For All Seasons” by Robert Bolt, the clash between Sir Thomas More (Paul Scofield) and Henry VIII (Robert Shaw) is brilliantly presented, as More refuses to sanction Henry’s manipulation to make himself head of the Church of England. The climactic scene in the halls of Parliament as More faces the men who will eventually condemn him is one of the most memorable ever filmed. Specially edited by LCA from the Fred Zinnemann feature “A Man For All Seasons,” winner of the Academy Award for best picture of 1966. An LCA release.
