Watch The Man in the Iron Mask - Alternative Versions.
Dumas' classic wonderful vivid novel sucks you in with its intrigue at the
highest levels, the moral contrasts, the cleverness, the adventure.
I was very surprised at just how fine this was - the cast is of the highest
caliber - Ian Holm, Patrick McGoohan, Ralph Richardson, Louis Jourdan - an
extraordinary Richard Chamberlin and a very pretty Jenny Agutter (though her
character is rather one note).
Note the movie is directed by Mike Newell - who would go on to direct
Enchanted April, Four Weddings and a Funeral and many other fine movies.
I was also floored by the producers' settings: four chateaus, the real
island referenced in the novel, Fontainebleau - this movie (though made for
television) must have cost a fortune to produce!
I think the Frenchman's comment below is a bit sniffy.
First, this was not an American production - but an English one.
Second, this was not a distortion of French history -- Alexandre Dumas pere
himself took many (wonderfully imagined) liberties in his novel - does

Thus, the complaint that Louis XIV did not after all remain faithful to this
mistress (as one would expect from the movie) is an objection to the
historical truth of the novel, not its faithful adaptation to the screen.

reviewer notes, for the character of Philippe, made far more sympathetic
here - but then most viewers (myself included) want a sympathetic central
I also find the reviewer who says this was poor except for the wonderful
acting of all the actors - to be a bit strange. They ARE the movie.
This was very well done, so engrossing and so much fun. Patrick McGoohan is
particularly wonderful, as is Chamberlin. Well worth your time - it's
efficient, clear, amusing, horrifying, romantic, and gives plenty for those
interested in history.
It's also the perfect exciting family movie (well, except having to explain
mistresses serving at the royal pleasure - that could be tricky) with
something for everyone.
