The Sky Is A Little Less Bright

The world has lost another of its greats: Paul Scofield

1922- 2008

He was one of the finest actors of our time, and he will be greatly missed.

Here is just a minute example of his acting prowess. It is from "A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS", in which he portrays Sir Thomas Moore:

If you haven't yet seen this film, I urge you to as soon as possible. Not only is the great Scofield in it, but also the late great Robert Shaw, Leo McKern, Orson Wells, and Wendy Hiller. A stellar cast in an incredible portrayal of King Henry VIII's open defiance of the church to divorce his wife in order to marry Anne Boleyn.
