Movie Info

The made-for-television The Man in the Iron Mask was, at the very least, the twelfth film version of Alexandre Dumas' novel The Vicomte of Bragelonne: Ten Years Later - the second sequel to his Three Musketeers. The title character is Philippe (Richard Chamberlain), claimant to the throne of France. Supporters of Philippe's vile twin brother, King Louis XIV (also Chamberlain), kidnap Philippe, lock him in a dungeon, and obscure his identity with an iron mask. But aging D'Artagnan (Louis Jourdan), who'd virtually raised Philippe from boyhood, reunites his old musketeer cohorts to rescue Philippe, overthrow the wicked Louis, and place the "rightful heir" on the throne. Emmy nominations went to scripter William Bast and costumer Olga Lehmann. Photographed by the great Freddie Young, Man in the Iron Mask was first telecast January 17, 1977

I haven't seen this for so long-need to re-watch. FYI< this is the one with Richard Chamberlain and it says it's rated "R" but it's not. On my "In Another Century" list.

this was the version i saw in my history class. its a good movie, but i hated the ending when the guy is in prison, in his nice clothes, and has that nasty dirty mask on.

This is the movie that inspired Steve Harris to name his band 'Iron Maiden'. Any movie like that deserves and Oscar!
