Robert Bolt's boring historical drama functions best as an anthology of British acting styles, circa 1966. Paul Scofield is Sir Thomas More, standing on his conscience when Henry VIII (Robert Shaw) breaks with the Catholic Church to get himself a divorce. With Wendy Hiller, Susannah York, Orson Welles, Leo McKern, Nigel Davenport, and (the new generation, waiting in the wings) John Hurt. Fred Zinnemann directed, and it was Oscars for everybody. 120 min.
