Name the director or star. Undoubtedly the most poignant and famous chess scene in world cinema occurs in the 1957 film The Seventh Seal in which a Crusader returning home challenges Death to a game in order to delay his own demise. Either name the director of this classic of world cinema, or the actor who played the knight, Antonius Block. While the director has passed away, the actor is still going strong!
Ingmar Bergman or Max von Sydow
