In honor of Rip Torn (RIP), here's footage of his epic brawl with director Norman Mailer during the filming of "Maidstone." It's not known whether this was real, staged, or (mostly likely) a combination of both (i.e.: improvisation that got out of hand). By the end, Mailer was bleeding from the head (where Torn had hit him with a hammer :lol: ), while Torn's ear was, well, torn.
