In 1625 an ambitious youth joins forces with THE THREE
MUSKETEERS to save the French Queen's honor from the
machinations of the cruel Cardinal Richelieu.
Douglas Fairbanks had one of his most popular roles as
swashbuckling hero of Alexander Dumas' 1844 novel. Exulting
in his sheer physical vitality, he never walks when he can
never runs when he can leap. While a bit melodramatic &
Fairbanks is obviously having a wonderful time and he wants
his audience to enjoy themselves, too.
As producer, as well as star, Fairbanks ensured fine production
values & large sets to backdrop his stunts. Notice particularly
the Parisian street scenes, how detailed & exact they are,
the crowds of extras looking as if they had real purpose in
they were doing. Also be mindful of the architectural staging,
whether it be walls, rooftops or monumental staircases;
were all built with Fairbanks' physical dimensions in mind,
that he could run, creep or climb along them effortlessly.
To such a degree does Doug dominate the drama, that the
characters of the three Musketeers themselves remain largely
undeliniated. Léon Bavy as Athos, George Siegmann as Porthos
& Eugene Pallette as a most unlikely Aramis are mere
window-dressing to showcase Fairbanks' exuberance. Coming
off rather better are British actor Nigel de Brulier as
rapacious Richelieu, beautiful Barbara La Marr as the Cardinal's
evil agent Milady de Winter & Lon Poff as the sepulchral
Joseph. Here are three villains worth watching.
Lovely Marguerite De La Motte supplies Doug's love interest.
Adolphe Menjou does well as the cold-hearted, vain Louis
Not surprisingly, the original story has been streamlined
altered in various ways and at least a couple of notable
have been omitted so as to provide a happier fadeout.
Fairbanks would continue the tale - and reprise the role
D'Artagnan - eight years later in THE IRON MASK (1929).
What were the facts surrounding the historical Richelieu
Buckingham? Since the novel & films make much of their
rivalry, a closer examination is in order.
Both men rose from semi-obscurity to positions of enormous
power & influence in their respective kingdoms. Each found
necessary to dominate the weak sovereigns whose patronage
they enjoyed. Both endured the utter contempt & hatred
powerful domestic factions allied against them. And were
ever a flirtation between the French Queen Anne of Austria
Buckingham, it was of a very mild nature. There certainly
nothing resembling The Adventure of the Queen's Diamonds
and all the derring-do associated with it.
Armand-Jean du Plessis, Cardinal and Duke de Richelieu
(1585-1642), came from a minor gentry family which was
saddled with enormous financial debt upon the death of
father. However, blessed with a very good brain & a
manipulative mother, Richelieu used his intellectual charm
advance his ascent through the Byzantine levels of Church
hierarchy. Once having caught the attention of Louis XIII
Richelieu never looked back. Eventually wielding absolute
authority, the Red Eminence took as his life's mission to
Spanish Habsburg hegemony in Europe and to crush all
outbreaks of French Protestantism as they arose throughout
For his part, George Villiers, 1st Duke of Buckingham
(1592-1628), had his extreme physical attractiveness to
for grabbing the eye of James I - who liked to dance both
of the ballroom - and later became the favourite of Charles I
well. The son of a knight, Buckingham soon rose to a lofty
pinnacle of power and angered the English nobles by his
monopoly of the king's affections and his arrogant accruement
of great wealth. As a diplomat & military strategist,
Buckingham was hopelessly inept and he needed the king's
protection to save him from trial in the Star Chamber.
failed disastrously in an attempt to succor the Huguenot of
Rochelle, France, he returned to England where he was quickly
assassinated by a disgruntled naval officer. When news
Buckingham's death reached London the people rejoiced in
