Trivia Alan Hale Jr. plays Porthos, the same musketeer played by his father Alan Hale in The Man in the Iron Mask (1939), of which this film is a direct remake, the earlier film's screenplay is credited along with the Dumas novel as source material. Furthermore, in At Sword's Point (1952), a Hollywood-concocted sequel to Dumas' novel "The Three Musketeers," Hale played the son of Porthos, while this film's D'Artagnan, Cornel Wilde, had the role of D'Artagnan's son.
