Paul Scofield died last week. Leave me alone. I can't help it I'm always a week behind. They never tell me anything here.
Don't know if he was Catholic, but he played St. Thomas More in one of my favorite films, A Man for All Seasons. It's a very traddy Catholic movie. Calling protties heretics and asserting the superiority of the Church over the state. Way cool.
You should buy it. It's cheap.
Here's a clip of More's final speech before the court. Notice what a blowhard Cromwell is. He's the one that stands up and says, "Now we plainly see you are malicious." Heh. I can say from personal experience that Cromwell sucks.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord.
And let perpetual light shine upon him.
May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God rest in peace.
