The brawl between Norman Mailer and Rip Torn in "Maidstone" is famous: Torn took a hammer to Mailer's head, apparently because Mailer was such an effective director that everyone lost themselves in their roles. And also, I suppose, because there was a fair amount of drug use going on. I've never seen "Maidstone", but here's the donnybrook..
I've often wondered if Mailer was really as tough as all that. On the evidence of the clip, I'd say he was pretty tough.

UPDATE: Come to find out that the cameraman on this shot was D. A. Pennebaker
