Description by OLDIES.com:
D'Artagnan is a naive and ambitious farm boy who yearns to join the Musketeers, the elite regiment of guards under King Louis XIII (Adolphe Menjou). Riding into 1625 Paris on the back of a weathered plowhorse, the young rapscallion quickly wins the respect and friendship of the Musketeers' most valiant trio in a breathtaking display of acrobatic swordsmanship. When Queen Anne (Mary McLaren) is maneuvered into a political scandal by the devious Cardinal Richelieu (Nigel De Brulier), D'Artagnan and his bons hommes embark on a treacherous race across France, to England and back to regain a precious brooch that will save the queen's honor and the future of their nation.
More than a thrilling adventure picture, The Three Musketeers is a handsomely-produced, emotionally sensitive telling of Dumas' classic novel, buoyed by Fairbanks's electrifying presence. According to Sherwood it is "one of the greatest achievements of the movies."
