Synopsis:
The story tells of the tempestuous friendship between King Henry II (Peter O'Toole) and Thomas Becket (Richard Burton). The King appoints his trusted companion to the esteemed position of Archbishop of Canterbury, believing his loyalty will give him control over the church. However Becket takes his new duties seriously and his devotion to God soon brings him into direct conflict with the State and his lifelong friend. Now a thorn in his side the King exclaims 'Who will rid me of this meddlesome priest?'
