So.. there now exists a program, or at least a set of instructions, on how to use a sword like a world champion sword master...

But it's no good unless-a he's-a study his Agrippa. According to Mandy Patankin, who *did* study his Agrippa for the role of Inigo.

(I love it that the dialog in The Swordfight cites not just famous swordsmen, but the people whose techniques they were actually using... and if you haven't read Cary Elwes' book, go read it. Right now. :)

IIRC the swordfight scene the dialogue was mostly improvised, stuff they came up with while rehearsing.
