Non-Dumas adventures of D'Artagnan and the Musketeers
The Musketeers and D'Artagnan are well cast. Sebastian Cabot (star of TV's Family Affair and the movies Miracle on 34th Street(1973) and the 1952 Ivanhoe put in a fine performance as Porthos. Jeffrey Stone the husband of French actress Corinne Calvert was an acceptable D'Artagnan. Dawn Addams was a mischievous though lovely Spanish countess who did not want to be returned to Spain at the order of King Louis XIII and D'Artagnan and the Musketeers are forced to make sure she complies with the King's order. Dawn Addams who had been in another Musketeer film played a relative by marriage of Milady de Winter in the Musketeer sequel Le Vicomte de Bragelonne aka Last Musketeer in a 1950's French-Italian production. With a blonde wig and those beautiful blue eyes she would have made a great Milady de Winter if she had been given the chance. She did a great job of playing Henry Jekyll's unfaithful wife in the 1960 Hammer Film Two Faces of Dr.Jekyll. Sadly to say this film has decent performances but is not one of the best musketeer sequels. Only a true Musketeer enthusiast will watch it which unfortunately I am.
