This is perhaps a bit of a stretch, and doesn't involve blood (and  
it's television), but at the end of a miming routine about props
during "An Evening With Fred Astaire," Astaire uses an imaginary golf
club to shoot toward the audience, and appears to accidentally shatter
the camera lens.

Quoting Miriam Ross <[log in to unmask]>:

> Does anyone know of instances prior to Saving Private Ryan where blood or
> other liquids have splattered onto the camera lens and have been left in the
> shot (thus suggesting the fourth wall).
> Following this enquiry, does anyone know of any 3D films that have used the
> same effect. Step Up 3D allows water to remain on the lens but I haven't
> seen this in any other previous stereoscopic films.
> many thanks
