4.0 out of 5 stars beautiful costumer that fizzles July 20 2004
Format:DVD
This movie is loaded with stars, Ian McShane, Ursula Andress, Beau Bridges (in the duo role) and Lloyd Bridges, Alan Hale Jr., Cornel Wilde, Rex Harrison, Olivia de Havilland and Jose Ferrer. The costumes are scrumptious and the locale work all help this movie along. It's good to see the old 50s movie stars having one last swashbuckle! Bridges is miscast and nearly sinks the movie, and the directing is stiff, but everyone does a good turn in the old Man in the Iron Mask story. McShane seems to have fun as Fourquet.
The much-filmed Dumas tale has the Philippe, twin brother of the King of France, raised and protected by the Musketeers. Fourquet, acting for the King, has the twin arrested and hidden by the iron mask. He plans to use the twin as a decoy in public, and kill him with a bomb. Then when the King surprisingly survives the attempt, it's supposed to make everything believe he is invincible. Only the musketeer is Johnny-on-the-spot to foil the plot, save their ward and then pull the switch by stuffing Louis the King in the iron mask and place Philippe on the throne of France.
It's a good transfer. Just a shame the younger Bridges hurt the effort in the dual role and the directing could not have been stronger.

3.0 out of 5 stars Why censor? July 15 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I have a copy of the full version of this movie on VHS and was looking forward to owning a copy on DVD. After receiving a copy of the DVD, I noticed the PG rating. To my dismay, I found that they had censored the 'juicy' parts of the movie. The 'juicy' parts actually portrayed the relationships between the King and his mistress and that between the future Queen and the King's twin brother. I did not find the 'juicy' parts to be offensive in any way but rather it contributed to the storyline as a whole. For censoring the movie, I give it 3 stars. However, I must commend the Studio for the quality of the transfer. The video quality is relatively good compared to the tape version but the audio quality in some parts of the DVD could be improved. I hope that the Studio will produce the full version in due course.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old stars play old heroes Jan. 12 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This is a fun little diversion for swashbuckling fans. D'Artagnan (Cornell Wilde), Aramis (Lloyd Bridges), Athos (Jose Ferrer), and Porthos (Alan Hale Jr.), prove they still have what it takes to be heroes as King Louis XIV (Beau Bridges) tries to eliminate his twin brother (Beau Bridges) and marry the infanta of Spain. The sword work is not quite as sharp as good Bob Anderson work or as excitingly realistic as William Hobbes, but there is plenty of it in a variety of creative scenarios. It is fun to watch the old actors Ferrer and Bridges work together as Hale tries to keep up and Wilde holds himself aloof. Ursula Andress adds camp appeal as the king's lover. Olivia de Havilland adds credibility in a cameo as the King's mother. There is also a good deal of political intrigue and mistaken identity to keep the story moving along.
Trivia: The role of Athos, here played by Jose Ferrer, is played in the recent "Man in the Iron Mask" by John Malkavich. There is another pair of historical sword-fighting movies set in France where these two actors play the same character. In "Joan of Arc" with Ingrid Bergman, Ferrer plays the Dauphin. The same role was played by Malkavich in "The Messenger: the story of Joan of Ark" with Milla Jovovich.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sensored version April 29 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I like the movie but not the version offered by amazon.com. I watched the unrated version in Europe and it was much nicer and made sence. Here I watch a tape and get upset how conversations are cut in the middle just because of the nudity of Silvia Kristel or Ursula Anders. For example, when Louise de La Valliere comes to join the king in bed she gets undressed while they talk. End of the conversation is cut... Believe me, uncut version is not something restricted, it is not even close to be "too bad to show", I do not understand why it is so sensored here. I wish there were an original version to buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good swashbuckler, but the "uncensored" version should have been released Aug. 9 2007
By Joseph A. Admire - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
It's frankly beyond me why the so-called "uncensored" version has never been released in the U.S., even with this new DVD version. I have seen the full-length version on Region 2 DVD (readily available for anyone with a DVD player capable of running Region 2 discs), and, as other reviewers have noted, the "juicy" scenes truly don't have anything that would be particularly shocking in this day and age. (If one considers the sight of the beauteous Ursula Andress and Sylvia Kristel in the nude to be a tremendous shock, one probably needs to get out more. :) ) More to the point, the uncut version (which, by the way, is available in English) makes more sense and flows better than the "censored" version - to the tune of 15 minutes' worth of additional footage, most of it _not_ sex-related. Several important conversations, as another reviewer noted, are sliced up because one scene or another showing a little more of Kristel or Andress than was considered proper were removed to get a PG rating in the US. A shame.

If you can get ahold of the uncut version and can play it, do so. This is quite a good movie with lots of good performances, including turns by several mainstays of classic Hollywood - the great Rex Harrison in one of his last roles and Olivia de Havilland as the mother of Louis XIV, to name two. There's all the sword action you could expect from a Musketeers movie. Andress drips sex and menace as the scheming mistress of King Louis, while Kristel (best known, of course, as Emmanuelle) is sweet and winsome as the Spanish princess dispatched to marry the King who ends up falling for his lookalike. Beau Bridges makes a good foppish Louis, but I'm not sure he's quite dashing enough to play Philippe, the lookalike; however, he gives it the old college try and acquits himself decently.
