Alexander Nevsky (1939) Battle on the Ice

This deserves to be in the pantheon of greatest battles scenes in film history. A scene from Sergei Eisenstein's Alexander Nevsky in which the Russians fight off the invading Teutonic Crusaders. The magnificent, stylized imagery would not be complete without the incredible score by Prokofiev. And those knights on horseback are unforgettable!
