Rip Torn vs. Norman Mailer
During the filming of "Maidstone" in 1970, actor Rip Torn became outraged by the direction Norman Mailer wanted to take the movie. Torn decided the best course of action would be to whack Mailer in the head with a hammer. Mailer launched himself at Torn, biting the actor in the ear and pulling him to the ground in a wrestling match. The fight, which was caught on tape and featured in the film, was eventually broken up by cast members. - Xfinity Entertainment Programmers
