Goofs

The officer in charge of the firing squad gives the order "Fix arrows." but all the soldiers are carrying crossbows. Ammunition for a crossbow is properly called a quarrel or bolt, and an officer would have known that. The correct order should have been; "Load weapons." See more »

RESTLESS KNIGHTS (Charles Lamont, 1935) **1/2
25 January 2008 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

The Three Stooges offer themselves as musketeers at the service of the Queen of France, whose Captain of the Guards is, unsurprisingly, planning to usurp the throne. After a bright start featuring Walter Brennan as The Stooges' dying father, this soon degenerates into a lengthy but unfunny wrestling bout among the boys; luckily, it picks up again when the Queen is abducted eventually, and much of the action in the second half involves the stars contriving to get rid of her captors.

Even though little is actually done with the medieval setting, it is nevertheless interesting as a spoof of many a costume piece/swashbuckler of its day – especially "The Three Musketeers"; for the record, director Lamont would helm many an Abbott & Costello vehicle during the coming decade.
