Plot Summary

It's 1649: Mazarin hires the impoverished D'Artagnan to find the other musketeers: Cromwell has overthrown the English king, so Mazarin fears revolt, particularly from the popular Beaufort. Porthos, bored with riches and wanting a title, signs on, but Aramis, an abbé, and Athos, a brawler raising an intellectual son, assist Beaufort in secret. When they fail to halt Beaufort's escape from prison, the musketeers are expendable, and Mazarin sends them to London to rescue Charles I. They are also pursued by Justine, the avenging daughter of Milady de Winter, their enemy 20 years ago. They must escape England, avoid Justine, serve the Queen, and secure Beauford's political reforms. Written by

Trivia Richard Chamberlain quit this movie because he was angry at the producers lack of reaction over the death of Roy Kinnear. This is why Chamberlain's role is so brief in the final cut. The producers had previously refused Kinnear a stunt double for his riding scenes. See more »
Goofs Cromwell is portrayed as leader of the Parliamentarian ('Roundhead') Army and de facto ruler after Charles I's execution. In 1649, however, he was still only second-in-command of the Army (he would not become commander-in-chief until well over a year later, following Sir Thomas Fairfax's resignation). William Lenthall, as Speaker of the House of Commons, was the nearest thing the new English Republic had to a Head of State until Oliver Cromwell took up the reigns of power as Lord Protector in 1653.
