Storyline

France, 1648: Richelieu and Louis XIII are dead, the new king is a minor, and the Duc de Lavalle is in virtually open rebellion, scheming to seize power. As a last resort, Queen Anne summons the heirs of the original Musketeers to her aid...including Claire, daughter of Athos, who when she chooses can miraculously pass as a boy, and wields as fine a sword as any. All their skills will be needed for a battle against increasing odds. One for all and all for one! Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Trivia

Goofs

As Cornel Wilde chops wood in his first scene, there is a "THWACK" sound effect for each chop. Then, when he throws down the ax onto the grassy ground, the "THWACK" effect is used again. However, there is another fallen tree just beyond the one he is chopping on, and the ax could very easily have landed on it, creating a similar blade/wood impact for which the same sound effect would be appropriate.

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: The year 1648 was a grim one for France. With the death of the great Cardinal Richelieu, the strong hand holding the country together was gone. Terror and violence ruled as the power-hungry nobles plotted to gain control.

One of my favorites!
18 September 2001 | by (Williams Bay, Wisconsin, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of my all time favorites! Swashbuckling, funny, adventurous and downright silly at times, it is ALWAYS entertaining to watch.

This is the movie that really made me fall for Maureen O'Hara. Red hair, green eyes, and she swordfights better than any man in this movie! What more could you want?

This movie seems to have brought out the true sense of whimsy in all of the cast. Their grins give them away throughout the movie. They were obviously having a blast. And so do we.
