Trivia

Alan Hale Jr. plays Porthos, the same Musketeer played by his father Alan Hale Jr. in The Man in the Iron Mask (1939), of which this film is a direct remake (the earlier film's screenplay is credited along with the Dumas novel as source material. Furthermore, in At Sword's Point (1952), a Hollywood-concocted sequel to Dumas' novel "The Three Musketeers," Hale played the son of Porthos, while this film's D'Artagnan, Cornel Wilde, had the role of D'Artagnan's son.

Swashbuckling entertainment and a couple of real beauties.
26 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

It's not a bad movie, but the best parts are played by the women. Ursula Andress looks absolutely incredible (like that comes as a surprise) and is very convincing as the bitchy yet extremely alluring Louise de la Vallière, mistress to King Louis. Sylvia Kristal is also very good in her role as well. If you are looking just to relax and watch a movie that you don't need to think about, this is the one. If you are a fan of women in corsets... have no fear, Ursula can satisfy that pretty well.
