The three best of the disbanded Musketeers - Athos, Porthos, and Aramis - join a young hotheaded would-be-Musketeer, D'Artagnan, to stop the Cardinal Richelieu's evil plot: to form an alliance with enemy England by way of the mysterious Milady. Rochefort, the Cardinal's right-hand man, announces the official disbanding of the King's Musketeers. Three, however, refuse to throw down their swords - Athos the fighter and drinker, Porthos the pirate and lover, and Aramis the priest and poet. Arriving in Paris to join the Musketeers, D'Artagnan uncovers the Cardinal's plans, and the four set out on a mission to protect King and Country. Written by
D'Artagnan is saved from beheading by the other Musketeers, who disguise themselves as a priest and headsman. While this scene is not to be found in the original novel The Three Musketeers, there is a similar scene in the sequel, Twenty Years After, in which the four musketeers attempt to save England's King Charles I by disguising themselves as men working on the execution scaffold.

[five Cardinal's guards ride up as Athos and D'Artagnan prepare to duel]
Only a fool would try and arrest us twice in one day.
You're under arrest.
Are you coming peacefully or do you intend to resist?
Oh don't be so stupid, of course we intend to resist! Just give us a moment, all right?
[to his comrades:]
Five of them, three of us. Hardly seems fair.
Maybe we should give them a chance to surrender.
Excuse me, but there's four of us.

I love this movie for its humor and tempo and of course because of the nice actors, but what I discovered last vacation made my day. We visited Vienna, Austria and we, my husband, my son Erik and me went to see an underground lake close to Vienna in a town called Hinterbruehl and they told us that this movie was filmed there and I saw the boat used by Cardinal Richelieu(Tim Curry) There are also still prison scenes where the musketeers run through following Richelieu to be seen. Very cool.... It used to be an plaster mine that when it closed was used in the 2nd WW for building airplanes. They still have to drain a lot of water everyday to keep it a touristic attraction. You get a tour in a boat and the water is very clear and cold, but very beautiful.
