Product Description

Product Description

Double bill featuring two popular comedy movies directed by Richard Lester. 'The Three Musketeers' (1973) is the star-studded adaptation of Alexandre Dumas' classic novel. The Three Musketeers (Oliver Reed, Frank Finlay and Richard Chamberlain) are in the service of the King of Paris when D'Artagnan (Michael York) arrives on the scene, creating a stir by single-handedly defeating two soldiers in a magnificent swordfight. Cardinal Richelieu (Charlton Heston) tries to embarrass the Queen of France, but D'Artagnan and the Three Musketeers come to her rescue. In 'The Four Musketeers' (1974), Milady (Faye Dunaway) is determined to wreak revenge on the Three Musketeers for foiling her plot to discredit the Queen of France. She enrols two accomplices, Cardinal Richelieu and the Count of Rochefort, and the trio of swashbuckling heroes find themselves once again fighting for the good name of the Queen and the life of Constance.

As most of the reviews posted here are generic, I thought I'd compose one that is blu-ray specific. Like me, most of you will doubtless be aware of the content of these two films and remember them with much fondness. On viewing them again I was surprised at how much of the script I could actually remember despite the two decades or so since I last viewed them on VHS video, a sign perhaps of a misspent youth watching too much television.
But enough of trips down memory lane, what do the blu-rays have to offer? These are not the first 'classic' films that I have purchased on the new format, and having been impressed with the likes of Zulu and A Bridge Too Far, I was slightly disappointed as the opening credits of The Three Musketeers scrolled across the screen, superimposed over the fast moving sword-play between D'Artagnan and his father. The picture appeared blurred and suffered from excessive grain and promised little improvement over and above DVD quality. However I am pleased to report that once the titles had receded, the picture quality vastly improved. As one might expect from a brace of films that were originally filmed in 1973 and 1974 respectively, the picture remains a little grainy, especially in duller scenes such as poorly lit building interiors, where blacks appear somewhat muted and lacking in detail. Faces and clothing too appear slightly softened in such scenes and lacking in the kind of detail one has come to expect on this format. That said, in the brighter scenes the quality of the picture is quite astonishing considering the age of the original material. The extent of Optimum Classic and Studio Canals' digital restoration shines through particularly in the magnificent costumes and back-ground detail.

The Three Musketeers has been done to death over the years, with some very good and very bad films resulting. The two films presented here are, in my humble opinion, the best. If you're after some flashy hollywood production however, don't look here, go to the (truly terrible) 1996 effort starring Keifer Sutherland.

These films are relativley slow paced, filled with great performances from a variety of famous actors (Charlton Heston, Oliver Reed, Roy Kinnear and Spike Milligan to name but a very few - you really couldn't get a more varied bunch!) The slow pace allows for a good development of many minor characters and for the director's attention to detail to really draw you into the world of 17th century France.

The films include many elements, high drama, moral dilemmas and several lashings of humour. Oh, and plently of realism. None of your highly coreographed fight scenes that look more like dancing here, when brawls and sword fights come along they look very VERY realistic, and totally different to the usual hollywood attempt at such things.

In all, a very atmospheric and entertaining few hours, which will have you totally caught up in it. And for the price being asked here it's more than well worth it!

The only thing required now is the DVD release of the third film in the trilogy. This was filmed many years after these (which were originally made as one film but released as two shorter films by the distributor) and marked the last performance of Roy Kinnear.

Truly, these two films are masterpieces, in turn witty, romantic, tragic and romping. The acting is superb, the pacing is superb and the scripting is superb. Then there is the humour going on around the main characters (such as the beggars continuing to ask for change when all hope is lost) and what can be said about the fight scenes that would do them justice? Rather than being Hollywoody they come across as being realistic: why waste energy sparing with rapiers when you can just kick the other fellow in the unmentionables? Having said that, the sword fighting looks like the characters actually want to damage each other, rather than just looking rehearsed. I remember falling in love with this film (and Faye Dunaway) when I was about seven years old and the film is still one of my favourites thirty years on. Buy it!

Anchor Bay deserves a great deal of credit for this informative and entertaining double feature of the two classic Musketeer films from the early 1970s.
Originally planned as one long epic movie (including a then standard intermission in the middle) the decision was made at some point during the production of THE THREE MUSKETEERS that they would either have one four hour movie or two separate movies. Rather than cut out some of the fantastic scenes that had been shot to make the movie more manageable the production company made the more sensible decision to cut the production in two releasing THE THREE MUSKETEER' one year and then THE FOUR MUSKETEERS shortly after.
Not everyone involved in the production of the movie was happy about the decision. Actress Faye Dunaway publicly stated that (had she known about the splitting of the movie into two) she would have refused to do it since her role in the first was so small. The move led to some litigation and was eventually settled but today movie contracts include what is termed "The Salkind Clause" (named after the Salkind's who produced the MUSKETEER movies) to protect actors from such moves.
It is perhaps for this reason that Faye Dunaway is one of the only still living members of the main cast who does not appear on camera for the excellent hour-long documentary THE SAGA OF THE MUSLETEERS that Anchor Bay has put together for this release.
Perhaps a deliberate reflection of the movie (or perhaps simply due to limited space on the DVDs) the documentary is split into two half-hour parts on each disc.
