Did anyone you know that Richard Burton was a haemophilic. It's true if when he was making the movie Becket, at the very end he is kneeling in the church and from behind someone is going to kill him with a sword, well before he could kill Burton he had to stand up when he did I believe he tripped and had a haemorrhage so they had to wait till he got better to finish the last scene.
