Three Musketeers, The (1948) (DVD)

The hectic adventures of D'Artagnan, a young provincial noble who just comes to Paris to enter the musketeers. He will meet action, love, hate, the king and the queen as his impetuousness gets him involved in political plots... and of course virile and indestructible friendship with the three musketeers Athos, Porthos and Aramis.

This is a fun film full of action and comedy. The players are wonderful - Gene Kelly as D'Artagnan, Van Heflin as Athos, Gig Young as Porthos, Lana Turner as Milady DeWinter, June Allyson as Constance, Vincent Price as Cardinal Richelieu and more. Kelly is delightfully acrobatic, jumping around as if his legs were coiled springs, swinging on ropes, fencing like a master - he is a joy to watch - he puts Erroll Flynn to shame. Van Heflin and Gig Young are perfect as his comrades - brave, dashing, as well as foolish and impetuous. Lana Turner is the beautiful and dangerous Milady DeWinter who seduces men to achieve the Cardinal's purposes and can be deadly. June Allyson is the virtuous and hapless Constance. Vincent Price is marvelously evil as Cardinal Richelieu - he uses people like chess pieces and even when thwarted he doesn't wish to kill D'Artagnan but to recruit him. The King is Frank Morgan (the Wizard in the Wizard of Oz), a bumbling but good-hearted king who doesn't quite know what is going on. The costumes and sets are breathtaking and the Technicolor is as good as it gets. There are some beautiful exterior actions scenes along the ocean (undoubtedly the Pacific but still gorgeous).
It is Kelly who pulls the picture together, however. He seems to be everywhere at once, so full of energy and life. Although he is a bumpkin from Gascony he is more than a match with a sword for any man in Paris be he one of the King's Musketeer or one of the Cardinal's guards. He does quite a lot with his eyes and his facial expressions, a bit overacted occasionally but still quite enjoyable.

I'm a huge fan of just about everything musketeers related (look at my other reviews), and this is my favorite big screen adaptation. Kelly is easlily the most fun D'Artagnon to watch and the sword play in this movie is excellent with his athleticism.

Of course, anyone who read the novel would know that though it includes sword play it is the charaters and plot that move the story along, so in that respect this movie does a much better job than most Musketeer adaptations. It stays fairly close to the original plot and though there is little time spent developing their personalities the Three are more consistant with their literary counterparts than in, well really, any of the other adaptations.

Over all one of the most fun adventure movies I've seen.

Format: DVD
When D'Artagnan (Gene Kelly), a brilliant swordsman, left his Gasgon village, in 1625, with a letter to Monsieur De Treville, captain of the King's Musketeers (Reginald Owen), he didn't expect to have in his first day, three duels with the three best swordsmen in Paris: Athos (Van Heflin), Porthos (Gig Young), and Aramis (Robert Coote).

But as the duels were forbidden in Paris by Cardinal Richelieu, Chief Minister to King Louis XIII, D'Artagnan had to challenge, first, Jussac, captain of the Guard (Saul Gorss).

The duel, under Tchaikowsky themes, was hilarious and explosive, with great acrobatic skills, good for lots of laugh, specially when D'Artagnan didn't kill the nobleman but he sent him to Richelieu well humiliated "trousers dropping." This amusing scene opens the door of an eternal friendship between D'Artagnan and the three famous Musketeers...

Cardinal Richelieu (Vincent Price) was unpopular, but extremely powerful... He was an ambitious man who wanted war against England and the complete destruction of the King's powers...

King Louis XIII (Frank Morgan) opposed Richelieu's plan for war with England... But the Cardinal, who well knows everything that transpires or has transpired in France, discovers that George Villiers, the Duke of Buckingham (John Sutton) - in love with the Queen - was in possession of a set of diamonds studs, twelve studs to be exact, that were delivered to him only last night by the elegant Queen Anne (Angela Lansbury) in love with the Duke...

Richelieu asks his mistress, lady De Winter (Lana Turner), to travel to England and to steal two of them... His plan is to demonstrate Buckingham's relation with the Queen, in order to make the poor King "lessen," and "lesser.

I own four different movie versions of The Three Musketeers and this one is by far my favorite. It leaves out some of the trickier moral issues of the original story (it was shot in 1948 after all), but manages to leave in all the action and swordplay. The good news is that the action is all very good and all the players do excellent jobs, particularly the Musketeers. The best news of all is that you can watch this one with your kids with very few worries.
This is a great family film. It's also romantic enough to be a great "date" movie if you're spending the evening in.

I first saw this movie when I was 8 years old and I also saw the Ritz Brothers version when I was 8.When I was 13 I saw the Michael York Version and the Walter Abel.I think this is one of the best versions because it has the entire book covered in 125 minutes.Many of the versions of this novel don't cover the entire novel(EXAMPLES:1935 Walter Abel,1939 Don Ameche,1950 Robert Clarke version and two Mexican versions from 1942 and 1959 and the silent versions of 1916 and 1922.).This version had some great acting Gene Kelly as D'Artagnan he resembled the character more than Michael York (I like Michael York he did a great job but he didn't look like the character described in the book).Lana Turner was great as Milady de Winter.Van Heflin perfect as the saturnine alcoholic woman hater Athos.Gig Young did a great job as Porthos.Robert Coote one of the first to show the priestly side of Aramis.Vincent Price excellent as Cardinal Richelieu a role he reprised 12 years later for a CBS Hallmark Hall of Fame television movie with Maximillian Schell as D'Artagnan.I like June Allyson but she and Frank Morgan were lost in this production.Angela Lansbury and John Sutton excellent as the Queen and her English lover Lord Buckingham.A note to fans of this version.Robert Taylor was first choice as Athos.Alida Valli was second choice for Milady de Winter if things hadn't worked out with Lana Turner.Ricardo Montalban was first choice for Aramis and Sidney Greenstreet first choice for Cardinal Richelieu.Errol Flynn was considered for D'Artagnan but considered to old by 1947 for the part.1947 was when this production was on the drawing board.Angela Lansbury did want the role of Milady de Winter but MGM chose otherwise.She would have been excellent.This is a great version.Read more ›
