The Swan
« on: 2008-04-15, 18:40:17 »
Hi All,

Last night one of my beginning sport fencing students mentioned the Grace Kelly movie "The Swan" as one of her favorites.  Apparently Grace Kelly fences and falls in love with her fencing instructor played by Louis Jourdan.  (No wonder!  No worries either.  Mark does a pretty darn good job of protecting his interest.)

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else has seen it.  Even better, does anyone have a copy I can borrow?

I'd hope that Mark would be able to fend off the now 88 year old Mr. Jourdan! ;)

Or, do you mean fencing instructors? i.e., no smoochies from the Velociraptor!

Louis Jourdan...now there's a guy who had his own kind of cool.

Blockbuster Online doesn't have it. I wonder if Netflix would?

I tried Amazon and only found it only in VHS used or in DVD with Chinese subtitles.  :)  There are clips on youtube but no fencing scenes that I've found.

I found a movie poster with Grace Kelly and Louis Jordan fencing.  (I do so want a fencing skirt!)
