Arsenic query.

Last night I watched a French film titled Queen Margot.  In it a character
ingests enough arsenic to do him in over a period of, I think, a few days.
The most gruesome symptom of the poisoning was that he "sweated" blood.  Can
anyone tell me if this is accurate?  If so, what is the reason.

Thanks.

BTW, It was a damned good movie.
