Did You Know?
- The producers originally wanted Sir Laurence Olivier as Thomas More, and Sir Alec Guinness as Wolsey, but Director Fred Zinnemann insisted on Paul Scofield (who had originated his role in the stage play) and Orson Welles in the roles.
- During the trial of More, after the guards at the back of the room turn around to face the roused crowd (1:57:22), they are facing forward again when the Chief Justice speaks, and facing the rear immediately after, with no time in which to turn.
- King Henry VIII: Thomas. I chose the right man for chancellor!
- Sir Thomas More: I should in fairness add that my taste in music is reputedly deplorable.
- King Henry VIII: Your taste in music is excellent. It exactly coincides with my own!
