4.0 out of 5 stars The Duke in Cliffhanger Action! 3 May 2001
By Mark Savary - Published on
Although this particular serial, one of only three the Duke starred
in, is not up to Republic standards, it is a real actionfest
nevertheless. And the cliffhangers are pretty exciting, too!
restoration is as good as any version you'll find, and probably better
considering this is a 1933 effort.
Shot in only 21 days, the serial
boasts not only John Wayne (as hero Tom Wayne), but Francis X. Bushman
Jr., Noah Beery Jr., a brief appearance by Lon Chaney Jr., (billed as
Creighton Chaney), and stunt work by Duke regular Yakima Canutt (who
also plays the villian El Shaitan when masked).
The story is billed
as "a modern retelling" of the classic Dumas story, with
Wayne as D'Artagnan. However, the only thing that remains from the
novel is the three comrades plus one, and the title.
Duke is en
route to visit his sweetheart Elaine in the Sahara (why she's living
there is anyone's guess). On the way, he rescues some French Foreign
Legionnaires from being wiped out by hostile Arabs. From then on, the
three are Tom's pals, and call themselves the Three Musketeers since
they are the only survivors of their outfit left.
El Shaitan is the
leader of a mysterious Arab cult called The Devil's Circle, who are
trying to accquire and take up arms against the Legion (again, no real
reasoning why, other then they are there).
Elaine's brother (Lon
Chaney), is murdered by El Shaitan, and Wayne is incriminated. From
there, Wayne becomes a fugitive from justice as he attempts to track
down and unmask the mysterious El Shaitan.
Ruth Hall, who plays
Tom's sweetheart Elaine Corday is great, although her career amounted
to mostly uncredited bit parts. She appeared in such famous films as
"Easter Parade", "How to Marry a Millionaire", and
"The Farmer Takes a Wife".
Like most thirties action films
and serials, this one features the still-new and ever fascinating
invention of the day, the airplane. Here, Tom is a pilot, as is Elaine
and the evil El Shaitan.
Always interesting to see the young Duke in
action, and this is no dried out piece of toast like some of the
bland, nondescript westerns he was trapped in between "The Big
Trail" (1930)and "Stagecoach" (1939).

5.0 out of 5 stars The first serial on DVD is Great! 7 Dec 1999
By "retroreelsdotcom" - Published on
This probably is not the serial I would have picked to be the first on DVD (Captain Marvel would be an obvious choice) but it is a good one either way. Roan's restoration is excellent as always. John Wayne makes one of his last attempts to act before making it big and just playing "John Wayne" all the time, and pulls it off in this one, though not nearly as well as in Hurricane Express. Serial veteran Jack Mulhall is a joy to watch, as is Raymond Hatton in this great updating of the Dumas' classic (though it really only takes the name of that fine literary work). Lots of digitally preserved action and cliffhangers make this one a keeper!

4.0 out of 5 stars John Wayne and the Forign Legion best the Tauregs. 10 Mar 2000
By Carl Evans - Published on
The Three Musketeers is a multi chapter SERIAL, of chapters that are about 15 minutes in length. If you are a SERIAL collector as I am, you will like to see this one. John Wayne is a Legion pilot, and he has three buddies also in the legion including: Ray "Crash" Corrigan as one of the legionnaires! Together they go through and happen upon a group of thieves and murderers. Time and time again, Wayne and his pals get in and out of trouble, in the end, they get their bad guys. This Serial is a must, if you are a fan of serials. Also if you are a fan of very early John Wayne pictures, you will get a kick out of him in a serial.

4.0 out of 5 stars A North-African "Western" 29 Jun 2008
By Jan Peczkis - Published on
Everything that you would expect in a western--the bragging, the shootouts, the fistfights, the outstanding horsemanship, etc., can be seen here. However, the setting is not the American West, but Algeria. Originally filmed many decades ago, it features a young John Wayne. He is caught up within an Arab plot, the French Foreign Legion, and El Shaitan--a mysterious figure. Wayne is falsely accused of murder and gun-running, and is placed before the firing squad. The guns go off before the reprieve can be delivered. Is Wayne dead? Will El Shaitan every be identified? See it and find out.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Cliffhanger Collection (1932-33) ... John Wayne ... Passport Video" 15 Oct 2006
By J. Lovins - Published on
Passport Video and Koch Entertainment Distribution present "The John Wayne Cliffhanger Collection" (1932/33)

(Dolby digitally remastered)...relive those thrilling days from the early '30s and '40s

when John Wayne took us up into the skies to exciting

adventures....some of the best cliffhangers ever to grace the Saturday Matinee

Screen...just remember double thrills, chills, mystery and suspense...hitting the bull's eye

with excitement...don't miss any of the John Wayne features loaded with action that will leave

you wanting more of his high adventures

First up is "SHADOW OF THE EAGLE" (1932 - B&W) (12 Chapters), under director Ford Beebe, produced by Nat Levine, original screenplay & story by Colbert Clark, Wyndham Gittens and Forbe Beebe....the cast include John Wayne (Craig McCoy), Dorothy Gulliver( Jean Gregory), Edward Hearn (Col. Nathan B. Gregory), Richard Tucker (Maj. Evans, company owner), Lloyd Whitlock (Green, a director), Walter Miller (Danby, a director ), Edmund Burns (Clark, a director), Pat O'Malley (Ames, a director), Kenneth Harlan (Ward, a director), Little Billy' Rhodes (Billy Little, the midget), Ivan Linow (Heinie, the strongman), James Bradbury Jr. (Henry, the ventriloquist), Ernie Adams (Frederick 'Pat' Kelly, the barker), Roy D'Arcy (Henchman Gardner), Bud Osborne (Henchman Tim Moore), YakimaCanutt (Henchman Boyle), Billy West (Bob, the clown ), Monte Montague (Callahan, Policeman at circus).......our story has seversal questions will The Eagle use sky writing to make threats against a corporation...can Edward Hearn who owns a travelling fairground and is thought to be the Eagle succeed in his evil plot against all that is good...will John Wayne who is a pilot go searching for the Eagle when Hearn's turns up missing....all of this and more await your viewing pleasure in a 12 Chapter Mascot Pictures thrilling serial adventure that is action packed. . . . . . . Special footnote, actor John Wayne once said, "Every country in the world loved the folklore of the West - the music, the dress, the excitement, everything that was associated with the opening of a new territory. It took everybody out of their own little world - The cowboy lasted a hundred years, created more songs and prose and poetry than any other folk figure - The closest thing was the Japanese samurai. Now, I wonder who'll continue it...His performance as Ethan Edwards in "The Searchers" (1956) is ranked #23 on Premiere Magazine's 100 Greatest Movie Characters of All Time...Of his many film roles, his personal favorite was that of Ethan Edwards from The Searchers (1956). Wayne even went so far as to name his son Ethan after that character...The inscription on the Congressional Gold Medal awarded to him in 1979 reads, simply, "John Wayne, American."...After meeting the late Superman star Christopher Reeve at the 1979 Academy Awards, Wayne turned to Cary Grant and said "This is our new man. He's taking over."...Turned down the role of Marshal Dillon on "Gunsmoke" (1955) because he did not want to commit to a weekly TV series. He recommended his friend James Arness for the role, and gave the on camera introduction in the pilot episode...I would like to be remembered, well...the Mexicans have a phrase, 'Feo fuerte y formal'. Which means; he was ugly, strong and had dignity."
