 A while back some movie-geek web site had a posting The Best Fight Scenes Of All-Time or something like that. 
It was fun, but as I recall, it was mostly stuff like The Matrix and Spiderman and shit. So periodically we'll be posting memorable fisticuffs they missed (gotta spread it out a few weeks or I want have anytime to watch TV)
 Here's part one: Wine And Dine....

The Ninth Configuration  (William Peter Blatty, 1980) 
 This ponderous "anti war" flick, directed by The Exorcist author Blatty, is dullsville until this wild barroom melee. Stacy Keach as bad-ass Colonel Kane, has to take on an entire biker bar to rescue his patient (Scott Wilson). 

Torn Curtain (Alfred Hitchcock 1966) 
A rather routine cold-war thriller, from the master,  highlighted by this gritty slugfest. Paul Newman brutally struggles for his life against an East German security agent (Wolfgang Kieling) added by the lovely Carolyn Conwell.
