Originally released as a motion picture in 1966.
Sir Thomas More, Chancellor of England, has an unquestioning faith. As a devout Catholic, More refuses to support King Henry VIII's divorce from Catherine of Aragon. In quest of a son, Henry wants to marry his mistress, Anne Boleyn. When the petulant king breaks with Rome and the Pope, More resigns his chancellorship in protest. Unsure in his new position as head of the Church of England, the king is unnerved by More's continued refusal to acknowledge his suzerainty. For his stubborn convictions, More ends up imprisoned in the Tower of London. For holding devotion to God and the Church dearer than his loyalty to the King, More dies.
Cast: Wendy Hiller, Leo McKern, Robert Shaw, Orson Welles, Susannah York, Paul Scofield, Thomas More, Nigel Davenport, John Hurt, Corin Redgrave.
Historical drama about the opposition of Sir Thomas More to the divorce of King Henry VIII and the events which lead to More's execution.
