The Three Musketeers

The story of Dumas has been ideally approximated in this screen version. There is a flare and sweep about the film, with the assembling, cutting and continuity seeming spotlessly correct. Douglas Fairbanks and D'Artagnan are a happy combination.

Of the interpretations, that of Nigel de Brulier as Richelieu developed a real creation. Excepting only the star, he dominates the picture. Adolphe Menjou does excellently in a role not actor-proof by any manner of means. His Louis XIII evidences both sides of the king, gaining sympathetic response where in most instances the opposite is the case.

The companions of D’Artagnan, Athos, Porthos and Aramis find apt treatment by Leon Bary, George Siegmann and Eugene Pallette. Marguerite De La Motte is a sweet and winsome Constance.
