There have several threads about favorite movies, but noone has mentioned Ridley Scott's first movie. 'The Duellists' was released in 1977, and contains the most realistic (at least to me) sword fight scenes I can remember. Anyone else seen it?

Dave, yes, I mentioned it, actors and all. I think that it is one of the very best sword movies ever made.

Let's not forget "Rob Roy"; the climax has Liam Nieson w/ his claymore vs. John Malkovich w/ a rapier (I think).
 
Actually, he fights Tim Roth, not John Malkovitch. Tim Roth, without the Rob Roy makeup and wig:

Thanks for the correction. Still, it does seem like a role that Malkovitch would get.
