British playwright Robert Bolt's A Man for All Seasons
was a critical and commercial hit on the Broadway stage in the 1960s, eventually spawning an Oscar-winning feature film that's considered a classic of the silver screen. The story centers around the true story of Sir Thomas More, the 16th-century Lord Chancellor of England, who refused to sign a letter asking Pope Clement VII to annul King Henry VIII's marriage to Catherine of Aragon, and who later resigned rather than take an Oath of Supremacy declaring Henry VIII the Supreme Head of the Church of England. Bolt's brilliant drama about conscience and belief portrays More as a tragic hero, motivated by his devout Roman Catholic faith and envied by his rivals, deeply loved by his family and respected by the common people.
