The Lion in Winter
Movie Quote Quiz

John: My God, if I went-up in flames there's not a living soul who'd pee on me to put the fire out.

Prince Geoffrey: I know. You know I know. I know you know I know. We know Henry knows, and Henry knows we know it. We're a knowledgeable family.

Henry II: HA! What shall we hang... The holly, or each other?

Henry II: I stole the candles from the chapel. Jesus won't begrudge them and the chaplain works for me.

Eleanor of Aquitaine: How dear of you to let me out of prison.
Henry II: It's only for the holidays.

Continuity mistake: In the last scene of the movie Eleanor leaves by boat to go back to her castle prison. When we see Henry waving good-bye he is standing right next to a post when we see him from the back, but this post is nowhere when he is shown from the water. (02:08:10)

Trivia: Filming was delayed for several weeks after Anthony Hopkins fell from a horse and broke his arm. In several scenes, his armor is concealing a plaster cast. Director Anthony Harvey was stricken with hepatitis, causing further delays in post-production editing. Only Katharine Hepburn's intervention stopped the film's Hollywood backers from handing editing duties off to someone else and from possibly shelving the entire project. (From the director's DVD commentary.)
