6. Liam Neeson's sword from Batman Begins
'Batman Begins' has one of the most complex of villains in any of the Batman features. He actually becomes a teacher to this Batman (Christian Bale), to make him a master in Ducard's "League of Shadows". A great deal of this movie involves this complex training in which Christian learns the arts of stealth fighting, ninjutsu, deception and what is known as combat theatricality in which you learn not only how to fight six men at once, but how to engage six hundred! This training begins on the ice, with a spectacular battle of wit, psychology and swords. This hero screen used sword is the actual weapon that Neeson uses in that scene.

The incarnation of Southern opportunist Rhett Butler was arguably Gable's most famous role, the reason he became a style icon!
