King Henry II standing in the crypt next to Becket’s tomb.
Becket was originally released on March 11, 1964 and cost 3 million dollars to produce. Looking at this movie today, there isn’t anything extraordinary about it, however, thinking back to when it was made you can easily understand why it was considered a grand production at that time. Becket is a great classic movie, and if you love history you will enjoy it all the more.
The real Thomas Becket.
