Three Musketeers, The (1948) (DVD)
Gene Kelly stars as the swashbuckling young French nobleman D'Artagnan who, possessing nothing more than his title, travels to Paris to join The Three Musketeers. D'Artagnan no sooner arrives in the capital, than he insults Athos (Van Heflin), Porthos (Academy Award winner Gig Young) and Aramis (Robert Coote), the most feared of the musketeers. Challenged to a duel by each, D'Artagnan earns their respect with his courage, if not by his fighting prowess. But his courage, skill and wit are quickly needed to help the musketeers thwart a plot by the powerful Prime Minister Richelieu (Vincent Price) to overthrow King Louis XIII (Frank Morgan), save Queen Anne (Angela Lansbury) and win the heart of Lady de Winter (Lana Turner).]]>

I have never seen such a well acted sword fight in my life. The choreography was excellent, the actors were fit and enthusiastic. I had no idea that a movie like this could exist.
Everyone should see this, it will change the way you look at modern movies forever.
One might wonder how the studio got all these stars under the same roof and still managed to make this picture. But, make it they did, with lots of adventure and humor, and some
truly death-defying sword play by Gene Kelly as the ingenuous and eager-to-succeed farm boy swordsman D'artagnan (some scenes of which were revisited years later in "Singin' In The Rain"). However, not a song or dance out of Gene in this film, although plenty of stunts and innocently-derived humor abound.
Van Heflin, Gig Young and Robert Coote are wonderfully cast as the Three Musketeers who take on D'artagnan as their protegé, and Vincent Price is marvelously malevolent as Cardinal Richlieu. The always outstanding Angela Lansbury shines as the French queen, wife of King Louis XIII, well played by a bumbling Frank Morgan. In one of her few sympathetic rolls, Angela as the Queen is mortifyingly caught in an affair of the heart with handsome John Sutton as the Duke of Buckingham.
June Allyson, the Queen's Lady In Waiting, also has eyes for D'artagnan, and the mysterious and dangerous Milady de Winter, nicely essayed by Lana Turner has, along with her cohort Cardinal Richlieu, the blackmail goods on almost everyone. Finally, veteran character actor Keenan Wynn soldiers on as D'artagnan's worry wort valet, in this fast moving tale of lovers, spies and court intrigue.
For Three Musketeer lovers everywhere this is a not-to-be missed best film version of this oft produced action packed adventure, and the print on this DVD version is great! Tom sez check it out!
