Swashbuckling fun!

Combining excitement and fun, this may be the best adaptation of the Dumas classic tale with swashbuckling swordplay and slapstick comedy all in one. The cast is incredible with multiple academy award winning actors in parts not often associated with their film resume. Michael York, Oliver Reed, Richard Chamberlain and Frank Finley round out the Musketeer's opposed by no other than Charlton Heston, Christopher Lee and Faye Dunaway as the villians! How does it get better than that. Raquel Welch is gorgeous and Roy Kinnear is hilarious making this a great film.
