Storyline

The adventures of ebullient handsome defender of justice Jean de Pardaillan in the Paris of 1588. The sprightly Gascon knight first saves a beauteous Bohemian girl, Violetta, from abduction but the young lady goes on being threatened by the henchmen of the evil Duke of Guise, for she is no gypsy at all but a young noblewoman, Isabelle d'Entraigues, heiress to the throne of France. What de Guise plans is to marry her, despite his relationship with princess Fausta, and become King himself. He has "Violetta" kidnapped again, successfully this time. Pardaillan swings into action, determined not to let faithless de Guise achieve his aims... Written by Guy Bellinger

Jean Marais's alter ego.
7 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

The swashbucklers were THE genre in the late fifties/early sixties France.While the intellectuals were discovering the nouvelle vague,the kids we were had much fun with those harmless stories of dashing knights,damsels in distress and villains aplenty.

"Le chevalier de Pardaillan" was adapted from Michel Zevaco's series of books which take place during the wars of religion in the second half of the sixteenth century.As Jean Marais was probably not available,Bernard Borderie hired Gerard Barray as the hero and his choice was good cause he had everything that made a courageous Gascon.Italian beauty Gianna Maria Canale was the traitor while very earnest thespian Jean Topart was cast as the duke de Guise .

Borderie was to make a sequel "Hardi Pardaillan" ,and then ditched his hero for a more lucrative heroine Angelique whose adventures spread over five movies.
