One Great Fight: Obi-Wan Kenobi vs. Darth Vader in Star Wars

Battle: Obi-Wan becomes stronger than Darth can possibly imagine following a lightsaber duel
Film: Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (1977)

The most famous of all light saber duels, and just the beginning of Obi-Wan’s influence on the outcome of the battle between the Galactic Empire and the Rebel Alliance. I was ten when this film was first in theaters, and was shocked when Ben’s cloak hit the floor.
