Dunaway) to remove Queen Anne (Geraldine Chaplin) from the seat of power. De Winter is determined to get revenge against the Musketeers, and when she learns that D'Artagnan is infatuated with the lovely Constance (Raquel Welch), she first tries to foil their romance by seducing D'Artagnan herself, and then by persuading Rochefort (C. Lee) to kidnap Constance. She then engineers the assassination of the Duke of Buckingham (Simon Ward), a close friend of D'Artagnan; when word of the Duke's death and Constance's imprisonment reaches D'Artagnan and his comrades, the foursome ride off to rescue the fair lady and see that justice is done against de Winter. The Four Musketeers was filmed concurrently with The Three Musketeers; it was originally intended to be one film, but when director Richard Lester realized the movie would be over three and a half hours long, the decision was made to release it as two separate features instead. This led to lawsuits filed by several of the stars, claiming that they were hired under false pretenses and entitle...The Four Musketeers (1974) ( The 4 Musketeers ) (Blu-Ray)

All actors are present and in fine form, including a formidable performance by Michael York in the lead role. Richard Chamberlain and Oliver Reed excel in roles that seem designed for their personalities.
The story of continuing intrigue and danger in the French courts provides a good story which never slows down and is equally dramatic as it is funny. Indeed slapstick is in abundance in this film but also is the tragic end of the film which soberly wakes up the veiwer to seeing just how ruthless Mi Lady De Winter or Rochforth can be. The ending has a touch of schmaltz but is well deserved for a masterpiece in cinematic adaptation of a Alexander Dumas' legendary novel.
The DVD is pretty basic all you really get is the film perhaps a documentary here and there wouldn't hurt now and then. I also would have prefered to have bought both the "Three" and "four" in one set but alas we must suffer for cinema.
This "sequel" (actually filmed along with "The Three Musketeers" but released separately later--much to the consternation of its cast who had intended to do one film and were paid for one, but who later sued for compensation! That would make a movie in itself!) brings all the elements of the first film together for a shattering finale.
The films play MUCH better back to back so that the interest and emotion carry through from the beginning to the end. Still, this is quite effective and a more thorough fleshing out of the second tier of the story than what has ever been shown before (even though many elements and even characters have been eliminated.) Rising to the forefront this time around is the fiendish, dangerous, glamorous Dunaway as Milady de Winter. Fans of "Mommie Dearest" will see the groundwork she laid here when she mistreats her servant girl, Kitty.Dressed up to the hilt in satin, feathers, beads and ruffles she is a towering presence, as striking to watch as she is deadly. She displays some truly menacing expressions along with some high comedy. It will be a long time before a viewer will forget Dunaway's scream as she is branded a harlot (in flashback.)
Reed gets to show more range in this half as well and he's excellent. They make for an unusual and intriguing pairing. Some of the stars of the first film get shorter shrift here (Chaplin, Ward, Welch), but all are still around and have their moments. Then underused actors from part one (Lee, Dunaway) get their turn here.Read more ›
The Four Musketeers: Milady's Revenge, is yet another masterpiece by Richard Lester, is a continuation of the first movie, The Three Musketeers. From start to finish, it's just a riotous comedy action and adventure movie, of the like, we will never see again!
The Three Musketeers, the Four Musketeers: The Revenge of Milady and The Return of the Musketeers: Twenty Years Later, which was filmed, literally Twenty Years Later, are just three of the greatest British Comedy Movies ever!
It's possibly the best sequel ever. The whole ensemble is on top form, almost like they were only warming up in the 1st film.
I still reckon that the blessed Roy Kinnear is the true star of these. He played a very similar part in The Travails of Sancha Panza at the RSC(?).
For once, I'd qualify it as unmissable.
the [...] had indicated that, in spite of
the listing saying Region B, it did in fact play on region A players.
They were correct. Plays fine on my basic sony blu-ray player, in the U.S.

It was a very enjoyable version of part 2 of the great story. The only reason I don't give 5 stars is that I simply can't abide Oliver Reed as Athos. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Helen
