Can you think of some books or movies featuring feuds between two individuals?

I am seeking suggestions for stories that focus on a long-standing hostile rivalry between two people.
One example would be the Ridley Scott movie "The Duellists" (starring Harvey Keitel and Keith Carradine). It is based on a short story called "Point of Honor" by Joseph Conrad, which in turn was based on a true story of two French military officers. One day they had an argument which resulted in them duelling multiple times during a span of 20 years over their differing principles of honor.
I have been drawing a blank so thanks in advance for any ideas!
(Suggestions do not have to involve duelling or violence...just a long-term feud between two people.)
