Wonderful to look at
21 September 2017 | by avrumelehSee all my reviews

I had the good fortune to watch this film. The story is engaging and the acting was...well, given the difference from today's acting to which I, like many others, are used...nevertheless just fine, even if of the kind we might expect to see in a silent action/adventure. Fairbanks is interesting and enthusiastic and whether or not he throws his arms up more than, in reality, any human being in his role's shoes would, is wonderful throughout the film. But, one thing that captured my attention even more than all the rest is the set and scenery. Filmed entirely in the USA, using a studio for its sets, it strikingly, consistently captures the atmosphere and feeling of Paris and other places in France, indoors and out, that one would expect for the 17th century times during which the story takes place. It actually would, I think, appear to any reasonable eye to have been filmed in real time. This is cinema at its very best in that regard, not to mention others. Fabulous...just fabulous in every detail.
