I am watching "A Man for All Seasons"


#1

Wow what an amazing life of St. Thomas More. This one is with Charlton Heston.


#2

Yep, splendid film. Scofield is magnificent.


#3

We watched that in High School history class. Great movie and great man.


#4

Ooh, Robert Shaw as Henry VIII.


#5

No matter what I see him in, I always think of Paul Scofield as the colonel in “The Train”.


#6

Oh, I love this movie! I must make time to watch it again soon – maybe this weekend. :thinking:


#7

Charlton Hesston was in A Man for All Seasons?


#8

I didn’t think that he was. But I looked it up. There was a tv remake in the ‘80’s,

My husband is a fan the original version.


#9

oh, a tv remake. was charlton hesston thomas more or the king?
thanks for the info.

i like the original one too.


#10

Thomas More.


#11

ok. thanks.


#12

Being enormously ancient, I can remember him on stage 50-odd years ago as Lear — such a powerful and moving performance that it is clear in my memory to this day (and I can tell you my memory ain’t what it was :slight_smile: ).


#13

I didn’t catch that in the OP. :smile:

I don’t think I’ve ever seen that version. I have the 1966 movie with Paul Scofield.

It’s such a great story about a truly great – and timely – Saint. A lawyer who becomes a Saint! :scream:


#14

He played Thomas More.


#15

Who played King Henry VIII in that version?


#16

Martin Chamberlain as Henry VIII


#17

#18

Yup, that’s a combination you don’t hear about every day.
