I very much wanted to include a clip from The Mission in the previous post: both for the power of the "conversion/forgiveness" scene, and for the glorious music composed for the movie by Ennio Morricone. But the clips were all deleted from YouTube due to copyright disputes. So instead I have found a clip from A Man For All Seasons--the dialogue I quoted between Cardinal Wolsey (Orson Welles) and Thomas More (Paul Scofield). Enjoy as a bit of lagniappe from the previous post.

  1. I always liked Orson Welles. His character (Captain Hank Quinlan) in Touch of Evil always creeped me out.
