On Old Movie Sword Fights

Those of my readers who are interested in swordplay might enjoy this video of Matt Easton’s, talking about the most important sword fight in the movie The Flame and the Arrow.  It talks about how the swordplay one sees in mid-twentieth century films differs from medieval swordplay and what steps the actors take to stay safe.  This video has to be one of Easton’s best fight reviews.
