Murder in the Cathedral

Today is the feast of St. Thomas Becket. Share

I've seen a portion of the movie "Becket" starring Richard Burton and Peter O'Toole.
Just reading about it is quite dramatic. Horrible that the four knights took Henry II at his word uttered his infamous quote in a drunk during a feast.

Yes, I have seen that film several times; I do not care for it because of the many innacuracies, especially in the way Queen Eleanor is portrayed. But there are many authentic accounts which are moving to read.
