A Man for All Seasons

In 1960 Robert Bolt enjoyed great success with the original London production of his play about the final years of Sir Thomas More, A Man for All Seasons. Following great international acclaim, Bolt successfully adapted his theatrical work for this film version directed by Hollywood veteran Fred Zinnemann. The writer’s script would once again be rewarded with a Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar and a Golden Globe. Alongside these, the critical acclaim for the film saw it awarded further Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Lead Actor (for Paul Schofield).
