"Man For All Seasons" screened March 22 by BYU Film Archive

The Brigham Young University Motion Picture Archive Film Series, part of L. Tom Perry Special Collections, will screen the 1966 biography-drama “A Man For All Seasons” starring Paul Scofield, Robert Shaw and Orson Wells Friday, March 22, in the Harold B. Lee Library auditorium on level one.

Admission is free, but seating is limited. Children ages eight and over are welcome. No food or drink is permitted in the auditorium. James D’Arc, curator of the BYU Motion Picture Archive, will introduce the film with behind-the-scenes information.

The 120-minute film of conscience and character follows Sir Thomas More’s confrontation with Henry VIII over the latter’s divorce and subsequent marriage to Ann Boleyn. Winner of six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Director, and Best Screenplay, “A Man for All Seasons” stars Paul Scofield, reprising his London stage role of Sir Thomas More. He is joined by Robert Shaw as Henry VIII and Orson Welles as Cardinal Wolsey.

Distinguished playwright Robert Bolt adapted his own award-winning play, and director Fred Zinnemann was universally praised, with The Filmgoers’ Companion judging his film “a triumph of sheer excellence in every department.”

The showing, part of the ongoing BYU Motion Picture Archive Film Series, is co-sponsored by L. Tom Perry Special Collections, Friends of the Harold B. Lee Library and Dennis & Linda Gibson.
