Utilizing the broadest strokes of comedy technique, this version of Dumas’ romantic adventure presents Don Ameche as a rather personable D’Artagnan, and the Ritz Bros as a helter-skelter trio hopping in and out frequently to perform their standard screwball antics.

There is little seriousness or suspense generated in the slender story, and not much interest in the adventures of D’Artagnan and his pals to regain the queen’s brooch in the possession of the Duke of Buckingham. Main excuse for the yarn apparently is to provide Ameche with an opportunity to be a dashing hero while the freres Ritz clown through the footage as phoney musketeers.

Romance between Ameche and Pauline Moore is sketchily presented, developing little interest or sincerity.
