The Three Musketeers

Richard Lester’s swashbuckling adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’ classic novel The Three Musketeers mixes comedy, romance and adventure with an astounding, all-star cast! Arriving in Paris, a young, inexperienced D’Artagnan (Michael York) becomes an ally to the eponymous heroes, Athos (Oliver Reed), Aramis (Richard Chamberlain) and Porthos (Frank Finlay), in a battle for fortune, glory and vengeance against the evil Cardinal Richelieu (Charlton Heston) and his duplicitous followers.

“One of the greatest visionary filmmaker epics of its era. Biting satire, thrilling adventure, and Buster Keaton level of slapstick comedy. William Hobbs choreographed the greatest sword fights in cinema history.” – Quentin Tarantino

“There were, once upon a time, four Marx Brothers, four Beatles and now there are the three Musketeers. I haven’t had such a good time at a new movie in years.” – Peter Bogdanovich

The Four Musketeers

Originally intended as a single, extended epic, The Three Musketeers was so full of fun that it was split in two with The Four Musketeers arriving in theaters less than a year after the first. Covering the second half of the Dumas’ novel, our heroes continue their rollicking¬† fight against Cardinal Richelieu. It’s four for fun and fun for all!
