I disclose here a lifelong fascination with fencing (particularly sabre, which I know some consider uncouth and their point is?). And I particularly love not just sport fencing, but stage combat. A well-choreographed fight is a thing of heart-wrenching beauty (and yes, Peter M. Ball, I truly do understand why you watch professional wrestling). Houston has reminded me of this fabulous scene from The Court Jester. If Basil Rathbone's character reminds you of Count Rugen, I will not find it at all surprising.
As You Like It, Act II Sc. 7
O worthy fool!
...in his brain,
Which is as dry as the remainder biscuit
After a voyage, he hath strange places cramm'd
With observation, the which he vents
In mangled forms. O that I were a fool!
I am ambitious for a motley coat.
