Storyline

The adventures of ebullient handsome defender of justice Jean de Pardaillan in the Paris of 1588. The sprightly Gascon knight first saves a beauteous Bohemian girl, Violetta, from abduction but the young lady goes on being threatened by the henchmen of the evil Duke of Guise, for she is no gypsy at all but a young noblewoman, Isabelle d'Entraigues, heiress to the throne of France. What de Guise plans is to marry her, despite his relationship with princess Fausta, and become King himself. He has "Violetta" kidnapped again, successfully this time. Pardaillan swings into action, determined not to let faithless de Guise achieve his aims... Written by Guy Bellinger

More d'Artagnan !
27 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

These two movies Le chevalier de Pardaillan 1962 and Hardi Pardaillan! 1964 are both made by Bernard Borderie who also directed "Les trois mousquetaires: Première époque - Les ferrets de la reine" and "Les trois mousquetaires: Tome II - La vengeance de Milady" both from 1961.

Both d'Artagnan and Pardaillan are played by Gérard Barray who seems to be playing the exact same character in all four movies. Both are a bold knight from Gascony with the same attitude. He even has similar lines. Like when a women says the bad guys were 20 and he says only 10 and I'm from Gascony.

Even the villain is played by Guy Delorme who also played Rochefort in Borderie's movies. So if you liked this you may want to watch the mouseketeers movies and vice versa.

Other than that its a pretty decent movie for its type. It could have been more serious but like most french swashbuckler's movies of the 50-60 its a funny entertaining adventure movie with a bit of romance.
