This video is the 8th in the series of the top 10 "sword fighting" films, in this case restricted loosely to fencing-based movies i.e. not medieval or ancient or Eastern in style. i.e. no. 3 in the top ten!
Apologies to everyone for the delay in getting this one up - other videos have interrupted production, as well as work commitments, and the sheer volume of sword fights in this movie!
But here is the next sword fighting film, and it is an awesome, if slightly weird, one!

Bob Hope comedy with Dorothy Lamour. | You can find more information regarding this film on its IMDb page.
My Favorite Brunette is a 1947 American romantic comedy film directed by Elliott Nugent and starring Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour. Written by Edmund Beloin and Jack Rose, the film is about a baby photographer on death row in San Quentin State Prison who tells reporters his history. While taking care of his private-eye neighbor's office, he is asked by an irresistible baroness to find a missing baron, which initiates a series of confusing but sinister events in a gloomy mansion and a private sanatorium. Spoofing movie detectives and the film noir style, the film features Lon Chaney, Jr. playing Willie, a character based on his Of Mice and Men (1939 film) role Lennie; Peter Lorre as Kismet, a comic take on his many film noir roles; and cameo appearances by film noir regular Alan Ladd and Hope partner Bing Crosby. Sequences were filmed in San Francisco and Pebble Beach, California.
E G and G. Edgerton, Germeshausen, and Grier. Edgerton of MIT became a household name with frozen images made with electronic flashes, such as the milk drop with the affect of a crown. --- The fact that film-makers were given priority in the 'nuclear' industries hints how important they were felt to be by the Jews controlling the 'industries'! Why should photographers get priority over science? --- 'Fastax'-type cine cameras with continuous narrow bands of film and prisms to keep the image sharp must have been another expertise. Very fast shutters are less important because most objects aren't bright enough. --- The short film here (may be incomplete) is a collection of scraps: it may have been made as a sales tool, or perhaps to point up areas for improvement, or show a selection of effects to be used in fake 'nuclear tests'. --- 'Lookout Mountain' may have been fed their material. My best guess is this company was Jewish, and kept the lid firmly closed on any speculations that nukes didn't exist, were over-rated, not dangerously radioactive, and all the rest. The film is certainly ambiguous and open to several interpretations. It may have been a promotional demo. . It was a techie US equivalent of the Jewish film crews which faked German atrocities and took care to ignore Jewish mass murders in the USSR . . Note: original format wasn't standard; playback may be better when more elongated . Sound track is Mozart's K522 Musical Joke. (I'd have preferred Walton's Facade, but didn't want copyright issues).
