* Both types of duel feature in Kubrick's ''BarryLyndon.'' There's also a twist in the "stand at your mark" version: the duellists ''take it in turns'' to fire, based on a coin toss. There's a memorable scene where one duellist, having missed his shot, throws up in terror realizing that his opponent now has the ''legal right to shoot him in cold blood.''[[note]]Actually more of an "illegal right": duels were technically against the law, but prosecutions were rare and convictions unheard of; whereas a man who ran away from a duel would be ostracized by the whole of high society.[[/note]]
