    I've wanted to see this 1977 film for ages. I can't seem to find it anywhere. I can't stream it online. I've tried all the video rental places in town to no avail. It's quite expensive to purchase online.

    This duel from the film is phenomenal:


    What do you think? Has anyone here seen it?

    Superb film, the fight choreographer William Hobbs also did Rob Roy and the '73 Three Musketeers which are good films with excellent sword-fighting. Also the 2002 Count of Monte Cristo, which has really good fight scenes despite being generally jank.

    It's his first film. I've seen a lot of his others, and I've enjoyed everything I've seen by him.

    I've never done anything like that before. I'll look into it.

    I literally still rent movies.

    Although it's not as quick, with older films, it's often cheaper to buy the Dvd then it is to stream the Dvd quality film.

    I imagine its expensive in the US because its one of ridley Scott's first films.

    Have you tried Canadian amazon/ ebay?

    The UK amazon has it for 4 pound. So max 8ish dollars, plus postage, but postage from The UK.
