Richard Chamberlain heads an internationally famed cast in this extravagant and beautifully compelling production of the Alexandre Dumas classic. In a tour de force of great acting Chamberlain plays the dual role of the imprisoned man in the hideous iron mask and his foppish, elegant twin brother, King Louis XIV of France. Chamberlain's performance, supported by an all-star cast, sweeps the story of high-adventure and romance to new heights. Lavishly filmed at historic locations in France, The Man In The Iron Mask is gripping, fast-moving, magnificent entertainment for the whole family.

I personally much prefer the quite lighthearted version (the story somewhat changed) with the same title but starring Jeremy Irons and others. My favourite musketeer is always Aramis, and Irons is a simply brilliant Aramis, bringing out just how clever Aramis is and how ambitious and brilliant.
Unfortunately, the only one of our musketeer heroes to appear in this Chamberlain Man in the Iron Mask is d'Artagnan and his original actions in the Dumas story are much changed. The script is manged well to ensure it all makes sense, but it isn't the original story and the lack of Aramis in particular as the grand schemer, and the lack of what happens to Athos and most particularly to Porthos is very unfortunate.
I imagine there were budgetary issues that made the producers cut the story to the bare minimum and on that level if's excellent.
Yes, there is a problem for me as doubtless for some others that Chamberlain had earlier played Aramis in the Lester version of the Three Musketeers.... it's a bit disconcerting to see the same actor as now the royal twins. Given a choice, I prefer Chamberlain in this movie as in the Lester movie he was a bit too tall, although he acted the part with perfect humour and charm.
It is a shame they have not brought out the The Return of Musketeers staring the same actors on DVD.
However, it would have been great if a few extra features had been added, for example movie trailers (it was a TV movie in the States but had a theatrical release in Europe), or a director's commentary.
That aside, The Man in the Iron Mask remains one of the best adaptations of Alexandre Dumas's work.
Special mention should also go to co-stars Patrick McGoohan (a delightful baddie), Ralph Richardson and a very young Denis Lawson for their excellent performances.
