Video link had a time-index to start at the end. Here's a clean embed:

(and wow, that was absolutely painful to watch) :)

I'm inclined to agree with Sir wolf here...I mean, whose bedroom were they in?  Why did the balding guy look like the Bishop in the 04 movie King Arthur?  And what were those weapons made of, balsa wood?  They clacked when they came together.  But other than that it was a great fight.  ;)

I like the candlestick maneuver. Especially when Knock-off Kirk Douglas tries to block with it, but Bald Guy breaks off one of the candles, freeing his sword. Now a lesser swordsman would have foolishly seen that as an opening for another attack and somebody might have gotten hurt, but these are clearly masters. Bald Guy expertly stops his blade in mid-swing so he can position it where it was supposed to go, preventing disaster and allowing Knock-off Kirk Douglas to bind the sword in the candlestick's arms.

Bravo, I say! Good show! *golf clap*

Do you think when actors are pretending to be permanently stuck in a bind it dawns on them that they can easily slip their sword out and wonder why they're told to pretend like the swords are made out of super-glue?

I've wondered exactly that. I mean, it actually takes some effort to keep the swords stuck together without slipping, especially if they move such that the angles change.

Easier to do with thick edged as opposed to sharp swords; plus they practice that whole 'test your might' thing.  lol

A little "dirty dancing" perhaps.   ;)
