God save The Queen (of Technicolor!)
on February 2, 2011
Dumas' Three Musketeers have been treated reverently, seriously, light-heartedly, and as farce. This time it's light-heartedly. The call goes out from the besieged Queen of France. The Princess, Her daughter, is being forced into a marriage which will threaten her younger Brother's chances of suceeding their Father (now deceased) Who can be trusted to spirit the Dauphin across the border to friends in Spain? The Three Musketeers! Sadly, though, their days of derring-do are far behind them. The Answer: Their Sons! (Oops, one of them is a Girl!) Ah well, any chance to get a sword into Maureen O'Hara's hand is only to the good. Cornel Wilde is at his dashing best, and the supporting characters are very well cast. A Pleasant way to spend a free Saturday afternoon, and Yes, the kids can watch it too!
