  • Heston is excellent here!

    I always envisioned the great Richard Burton in this role but Heston does an extremely good job here - much better than Scofield did. This was a "made for tv" film and not released in theaters but I am grateful TCM has it! Heston was 65 when he made this film. Sir Thomas More was 57 when he was hanged and beheaded. The age is about right for Heston's portrayal. This film follows the play much more literally and this makes the words more important, as they should be. The film is rich in costuming and locales. The casting of Sir John Gielgud as Cardinal Wolsey and Vanessa Redgrave as More's wife adds a great deal to the film but it is Heston who brings everything he ever learned to the film. His peformance is restrained and superb!

    While the 1966 version may be an academy award winner, the 1988 version is, from every perspective, superior. The later version employs a key tool of the play, the Everyman, a device of Bolt's the 1966 version ignors, and stays completely faithful to the original dialogue. The acting, with the possible exception of Henry, is much superior in the later version with Heston bringing the character to life compared to Scofields rather flat performance. From musical score to location to directing, the 1988 version bests its predecessor.

  • Perfect! Pure genius!

    In my opinion, A Man for All Seasons, starring Charlton Heston and Vanessa Redgrave, is one of the greatest movies ever produced. I own a VHS version of it, and every successive time I view it, I have new insights and marvel at its genius. I'm praying it will be put out on a DVD -- it would be a crime to allow it to slip into oblivion, because it definitely qualifies as a classic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
