    I must admit that the duel scene from the 1950 Cyrano de Bergerac, accompanied by poetry, is one of my all-time favorites.


    Peace favor your sword,

    I prefer the Gerard Depardieu version

    If it makes you feel any better, I've seen Captain Kronos myself. Nerds unite.

    Quality movie but the sword work is dismal.

    The Bear.

    Yeah, I was disappointed with the choreography myself. But I do love the cheese.

    That scene is EPIC. I haven't seen it in years. Thanks for the reminder!

    OK, forget Captain Cronos, how about Rob Roy?

    BTW I made a goof. it was Michel Carliez who did the sword work on Le Bossu (not Hobbs although they did work together on Cyrano De Bergerac).

    Daniel Auteuil and Vincent Perez :)

    Ooh, that was a good one. Smallsword versus basket-hilt claymore, and it played out exactly how I thought it would (minus the ending that had more to do with guile than bladework).

    Rob Roy would have been good but neither fought in the style of the sword they used. Instead we get the same old rubbish stage fighting you always see. The Bob Anderson effect I call it.

    The Bear.

    The Bergerac clips were both amazing but I have to say I prefer the original, much as I like Depardieu. Will be looking out for them both, though, I do love a good swashbuckler, not seen one for a long time. For some reason imdb's keyword search for swashbuckler only turns up about 20 films :/
