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!

We were in our Cornel Wilde phase when we bought this video. And, granted, Wilde is a sumptuous feast for the eyes in the film. A champion fencer before he burst onto the entertainment scene, he struts his stuff here, performing his own impressive stunts to perfection. Maureen O'Hara, deservedly dubbed the Queen of Technicolor, is an undeniable vision, with her flashing green eyes and her lush red hair. She portrays the daughter of Artho, a famed Musketeer, and she is easily the match of any man with a sword. Admittedly, the storyline is an intriguing one, with the beseiged Queen of France summoning the sons (and, unbeknownst to her, one daughter) of the original Musketeers to rush to the aid of her beloved country. And, while the climactic uprising of the oppressed French populace stirred us in this, our own, era of powerless citizenry, I must warn you that the film plays like something at a kiddie matinee. The plot is simplistic and the acting stilted. It is beautifully crafted, however - an innocent trifle worthy of a rainy afternoon viewing.

I can't get closer to the four o'clock sunday matinees in the movie theaters of my childhood and youth. What a splendid swashbuckling action picture. Cornel Wilde is at his top and Maureen O'Hara is beautiful as ever and oh, she can fight with a sword. The picture is ultra Sharp and the colors playing architecture like with each others so each and every scene is a pleasure. And a Little curiosity. The old Porthos is played by the Porthos of the 1935 Three Musketeers.

This has been one of my most favorite movies of all time. Of course it helps that I have always been in love with Cornel Wilde but the chemistry between Cornel and Maureen is indescribable. The sets, costumes, and storyline are great. I have had this on VHS for many years and have watched for it on DVD b/c my tape is literally worn out.

If you like old swashbucklers with lots of sword play, you'll like At Sword's Point. It has all the elements: the heroic swashbuckler (Cornel Wilde); the heroine (Maureen O'Hara) and even supporting cast members (Alan Hale Jr.) that we recognize before they did what they are most famous for (the Skipper on Gilligan's Island). A Great story, lots of action and plenty of swordplay makes for a great action film. Was a must for my collection, how about you?

This is a very fun movie and the scene in the bedroom with Maureen O'Hara being revealed as a woman is just too halarious for words. A great addition to a collection of Musketeer movies.

There's nothing like an old movie to get the blood pumping! This one is among the best. The sword fighting, the suspense, and a look told more between the hero and heroine than any dialogue could. I highly recommend it.

If you like swash buckler movies, you will like this one. Maureen O'Hara does her own fencing. She was quite the swords woman and did a lot of her own stunts. This movie has comedy in it, thus making it fun to view. Maureen makes the movie. I own it in my library and am very glad I bought it.

Maureen O'hara strikes an early blow for feminine power as she becomes one of the Musketeers...A lot prettier than her fictional father, Athos. The movie is great fun with the actors portraying the sons (and daughter) of the famous Dumas characters. Some good sword fight scenes with Miss O'Hara holding her own.
