Movie Info

In this version of the Dumas classic, the title character is the rightful King of France, imprisoned by his pretender-to-the-throne twin brother. Warren William plays musketeer D'Artagnan, who rallies his now aged swashbuckling companions Porthos, Athos, and Aramis to rescue the real King, whom they have raised from infancy.

[Director James] Whale turns the dialogue into a duel in its own right, with the advisors currying favor with the corrupt King Louis XIV and the Musketeers jabbing away with witty comments.

Some movie's you just shouldn't knock until you've seen them.
