Danny Kaye, the American 50s version of Jackie Chan?
Basil Rathbone said Kaye was the only actor he performed with who could actually beat him in fencing for real (although maybe he was just getting really old by then).

Love the ending.
Least obvious dummy ever!

Did not see that coming.

This was wonderful. Simply wonderful.
It got a little silly after the last finger snap (when the Kaye did it to himself)), but still... Just...

Why can't movies still do stuff like this?
I was thinking of this movie at work because I said "Don't worry, I'll finish this job like THAT!" and snapped my fingers and realized that I suddenly wanted to be the World's Greatest Swordfighter.

5 stars for the submitter, i love the idea that anybody knows anything about movies like this or about 'swordfights'
This scene makes allusions to Rathbone's performance in The Mark of Zorro, which was already submitted and can be viewed here: http://poetv.com/video.php?vid=38352
