Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope - Glass Saber
In SWE4, when Darth and Obi Wan are fighting, Obi points his saber to the screen, and the sides stop lighting up. It looks like a fiber optic cable. Only the top is lit.

Yeah! I found that so annoying too. But I think they used metal bars and than when the film went to the special people they added in the light, so maybe they weren't sure what to do when the lightsabre pointed at the screen.

Since lightsabers don't actually exist in reality, we could assume that the blade really is hard to see when pointed right at you.

It looks like that because that is what they used. If you get a chance, watch the making of the movie and you will see how it is done.

Fiber optic cable did not exist in the 70's, the actual Lightsaber prop used an aluminum rod that later had the blade effect added on.
