A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS
Tuesday, February 3
(1966, Fred Zinnemann) Crimson-garbed Welles guest stars as Cardinal Wolsey, while Paul Scofield’s Sir Thomas More risks his head opposing Robert Shaw’s Henry VIII, in this multi-Oscared (6 in all, including Best Picture, Actor, and Director) adaptation of Robert Bolt’s stage classic. Approx. 120 min. 35mm.
“A PICTURE THAT INSPIRES ADMIRATION, COURAGE AND THOUGHT. Zinnemann has crystallized the essence of this drama in such pictorial terms as to render even its abstractions vibrant. Welles plays with subtle, startling glints of poisonous evil that are extraordinary.”
– Bosley Crowther, The New York Times
“An excellent, handsome and stirring film version.”
