    This is probably the only time I get to correct any of you on anything. The movie Jim was thinking of was “The Raven” 1960’s version and the duel was between Boris Karloff and Vincent Price. Peter Lorre is also in it and he and Price are very funny together. Great episode; I now know who to thank for making combat a Dex check. Point buys are evil.$$$$
