Best duels
List creator: ColonelKong
Created on: October 9, 2003 - 10:36 AM PDT
Description: This is sort of a supplement to my "Best climactic bloodbaths" list, most of these confrontations are more about the suspense leading up to the violence than the violence itself

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966)
  Includes my favorite climactic duel in a film, set to an absolutely badass piece of scoring by Ennio Morricone
For a Few Dollars More (1965)
  The ending duel of this film is a sort of dress rehearsal for that of the film above, and also a good scene in it's own right
A Fistful of Dollars (1964)
  Yojimbo is definitely the better film, and Sergio Leone would go on to bigger and better things (also see Once Upon a Time in the West), but this film has a good ending duel that's not a knockoff of the one in Yojimbo
Run Man Run (1968)

  [Placeholder for Sergio Sollima's The Big Gundown] There are also several non-Leone spaghetti westerns with great duels
Yojimbo (Criterion Collection) (1961)

  Akira Kurosawa has several great duel scenes to his credit, including the climaxes of this film and....
Sanjuro (Criterion Collection) (1962)
Not Rated
Seven Samurai (Criterion Collection) (1954)
  This film has a great duel that's also a great introduction to one of the characters
Rashomon (Criterion Collection) (1951)
  Of course, this film has conflicting accounts of the same duel
Barry Lyndon (1975)
  The ending duel of this film is rather genteel compared to the others on this list, but still an incredible scene
The Duellists (1977)
  Ridley Scott's directing debuts has several good duel scenes, with sabers, pistols, and on horseback (and it's not nearly the ripoff of the above film that I'd always head it was)
Hamlet (Criterion Collection) (1948)
  Had to include at least one version.....
