Have you guys seen that old film clip from the 40's where the villain prances around before Chongo Chimp, demonstrating a stunning set of elaborate sword flourishes to terrorize his simian adversary before delivering the fatal stroke...
...and Chongo gives him a sort of world-weary look, pulls out his trusty .44 Special, and POW!!! One dead expert swordsman.
It was so cool that they used the identical setup later in that first Indiana Jones film, and Chongo never even got any royalties. That's Hollywood specism for you.
