Editorial Reviews

In this action-packed adaptation of Alexander Dumas' The Three Musketeers. Tom Wayne (John Wayne) is a fugitive from justice, framed for a murder he did not commit. El Shaitan, the mysterious and diabolical leader of the Devil's Circle, a group who are plotting an Arab rebellion against the Foreign Legion, is to blame. It's up to Tom's sweetheart Elaine and the trustworthy Three Musketeers, Clancy (Jack Mulhall), Renard (Raymond Hatton) and Schmidt (Francis X. Bushman Jr.), to put an end to his reign of terror and clear Tom's name.

Tom and the Three Musketeers narrowly escape death as they saddle up for a Sahara thrill-ride in the name of truth, justice and brotherhood. This 1946 release is a feature length version of the 1933 12 chapter serial The Three Musketeers.

I'm a John Wayne freak and love all of his movies. I purchased this one for my collection but found it to be of poor quality. I had hoped it had been enhanced a bit, but it had not. You have to really be a John Wayne fan to sit through this one.

Released in 1946, this feature is cobbled together from a 12 part 1933 Mascot serial, THE THREE MUSKETEERS, and purports to be based upon the classic work by Dumas, with the action transferred to the Sahara and involving a struggle of the French Foreign Legion opposite a secret group of Arab villains, with John Wayne's character mentioned in the script as D'Artagnan to a trio of guardsmen. The original serial is grotesquely silly, and this synthesis is, if possible, even worse, with situations and dialogue that are numbingly puerile; however, if the film lacks any direction whatsoever, the viewer cannot fail but be amazed at the athletic equestrian stuntwork of Yakima Canutt and his crew of worthies, actively and dramatically superior as they are to the remainder of the performers.

This is a movie re-release of a movie serial, Three Mesquiteers, from Nat Levine's pre-Republic studios from about 1934. As with all serial re-releases, all cliff hangers were eliminated, making this film a bit difficult to follow. It is a fun serial to watch. This 'movie' may have some worth, however, watching Wayne trying to emote. He's even more woooden than usual.

This is an old serial from my youth. It was ground braking then and is very watchable today.

Somehow age seems unimportant when you watch this compilation of short films made into one full length movie. The seamless film editing is truly well done. If you didn't know before hand you would never guess it.

This is a new release not something that has been on every bunch of multi-film release packages and renamed several time like so many others.

If your a John Wayne fan its a must have.

John Wayne is my favorite male actor, so I watch most of his movies repeatedly.

I have been collecting John Wayne videos for years and I have to say that this movie should not have been distributed until it was cleaned up and enhanced. Platinum-brand produced movies have always been a disappointment. They seem to find an old VCR or 8mm tape and do straight, unedited transfers to DVD. And to add an additional annoyance, they display their brand name repeatedly throughout the movie. I hope that a reputable DVD producer distributes a quality copy of Desert Command in the near future.
