What’s On This Morning??? “A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS” (1966)

The ACADEMY AWARD WINNER For BEST PICTURE Of 1966, "A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS"...

…Starring…

...PAUL SCOFIELD In His OSCAR WINNING Role As SIR THOMAS MORE...

…Also Starring…

...ROBERT SHAW In His OSCAR NOMINATED Role As KING HENRY VIII...

…And Also Starring…

...The Great ORSON WELLES As CARDINAL WOLSEY!!!

A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS

…Is…

…A Truly Forgotten Classic…

…And One Of The Best Period-Piece Dramas Of It’s Time.

If You’ve Studied Your History…

…Then You Likely Already Know The Story…

…Though One Is Never Really Sure If Any Film Ever Gets The Story Totally Correct.

Of That Point, I Shall Not Debate.

I Know What “History History” Says…

…And This Film Does Come Closer Than Most Others In Telling Said Story.

There Are A Lot Of Questions Left Open To Us…

…Fo SHO Fo SHO…

…But It’s Always Difficult Trying To Squeeze-In A Pant-Load Of Info…

…Into A 2-Hour Film…

…Fo SHO Fo SHO Fo SHO!

What Drives This Film, However, Is NOT The Story Being Told.

Honestly, It’s The WAY The Story Is Being Told.

The Actors…

…In…

A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS

…Really Do Their Jobs…

…And Do Them EXCEPTIONALLY WELL.

The Sets AND Settings Are WONDERFUL.

It’s Very VERY Easy To Tell, My Peeps…

…That EVERYONE INVOLVED Really DID Bring Their “A-GAME”…

…And I Sincerely Think THAT Is What Sold The Film…

…To…

…The Critics…

…The Public…

…And…

…The Academy Award Voters.

PERIOD.

A Lot Of TIME And EFFORT Went Into Making This Film…

…And It’s A Film I’ve Enjoyed Watching Over The Years.

Do Yourself A Favor, My Peeps…

…Give This Flick…

A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS

(1966)

… A Shot.

A Love Of History Is NOT Required To Enjoy What You’re Watching Here…

…Though It MAY Help.

It’s Simply A VERY Well Made Motion Picture.

Sometimes, That’s All One Is REALLY Looking For…

…Right?

RIGHT!!!
