This is a 27" x 41" US AA one-sheet for the 1966 Fred Zinneman
film A Man for all Seasons based on play and screeenplay by
Robert Bolt and starring Paul Scofield as Thomas More. The film won
six academy awards and with sales of $28,350,000 was the fifth
highest-grossing film in the US in 1966. Plot summary: In 1529 as a
member of the Privy Council, Sir Thomas More refuses to go along with
Cardinal Wolsey [Orson Welles], Lord Chancellor of England, in asking
Pope Clement VII to annul King Henry VIII's [Robert Shaw] marriage to
Catherine of Aragon; later, after becoming Lord Chancellor himself,
Thomas More resigns rather than take an oath of supremacy declaring
Henry VIII supreme head of the Church of England. The king wants his
marriage anulled because Catherine is barren; he wishes to marry Anne
Boleyn [Vanessa Redgrave] so there will be an heir to throne. More is
imprisoned in the Tower of London for his refusal to take the oath.
This was John Hurt's film debut, in the role of Richard Rich.
Orson Welles as Cardinal Wolsey speaking to Thomas More: "You're a
constant regret to me Thomas. If you could just see facts flat on
without that horrible moral squint, with a little common sense you
could have made a statesman!"
