A Man for All Seasons


Time Out says

An agonisingly respectable, sincere film of Robert Bolt's literate play, with Scofield as Sir Thomas More, endorsing the divine right of the Pope over and above his King. McKern is Thomas Cromwell; Shaw, Henry VIII; Hiller, Mrs More. They're all fine, but Orson Welles alone relieves the boredom in a marvellous cameo as Cardinal Wolsey. If only they'd let him loose with the whole sorry history...
