James Whale's exciting adaptation of the Alexandre Dumas novel centers on twin heirs to France's throne who are separated at birth. The first-born Louis, is raised as a prince, but Philippe is brought up ignorant of his true identity. When Philippe is arrested with his companions, d'Artagnan and the three Musketeers, he meets his brother, now the king, face-to-face. The tyrannical Louis decides Philippe could be useful to him as a look-alike, but complications arise when Philippe meets the king's beautiful fiancÃ©e.
Whale's film is a swashbuckling adventure tale, full of palace intrigues and thrilling sword fights.

I bought a copy recently, which was in excellent condition. Not at all to my surprise after watching as a kid and seeing it now for the first time as an adult, I had a different take.
What I like about all old movies, is that they move quickly. They speak fast and change scenes fast, except the romance scenes.
This movie completely ignores two of the three (4) musketeers, but maybe the book does too. I haven't read it. Everyone is unrealistically fearless, even at their death.
Having said that; the movie is still so much fun and is still the best version made. The good guys are great and the bad guys are horrible.
