Storyline

France, 1648: Richelieu and Louis XIII are dead, the new king is a minor, and the Duc de Lavalle is in virtually open rebellion, scheming to seize power. As a last resort, Queen Anne summons the heirs of the original Musketeers to her aid...including Claire, daughter of Athos, who when she chooses can miraculously pass as a boy, and wields as fine a sword as any. All their skills will be needed for a battle against increasing odds. One for all and all for one! Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Goofs

The opening narration mentions the year 1648, implying that Cardinal Richelieu died then, and the loss of his "strong hand holding the country together" was the beginning a period of great instability in France that led to the events depicted in this film. However, he passed away in 1642, leaving 1648 to be interpreted as the year this story takes place. The problem with that is the fact that Queen Anne, whose own death is indicated here, died in 1666 when son Louis XIV was 27 years old and long since reigning on his own, not the prepubescent boy for whom she acted as regent seen here. Said regency ended in 1651, not 1648. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: The year 1648 was a grim one for France. With the death of the great Cardinal Richelieu, the strong hand holding the country together was gone. Terror and violence ruled as the power-hungry nobles plotted to gain control.

One of my favorites!
18 September 2001 | by historyrepeatingSee all my reviews

This movie is one of my all time favorites! Swashbuckling, funny, adventurous and downright silly at times, it is ALWAYS entertaining to watch.

This is the movie that really made me fall for Maureen O'Hara. Red hair, green eyes, and she swordfights better than any man in this movie! What more could you want?

This movie seems to have brought out the true sense of whimsy in all of the cast. Their grins give them away throughout the movie. They were obviously having a blast. And so do we.
