Director Richard Lester (A Hard Day's Night) offers a hilariously different approach to the classic Alexandre Dumas tale of swashbuckling swordsmen. Michael York stars as the famed musketeer-to-be D'Artagnan, who befriends great swordsmen Athos, Porthos and Aramis (Oliver Reed, Frank Finlay and Richard Chamberlain). They risk their lives for Queen Anne (Geraldine Chaplin), and foil the schemes of the nefarious Cardinal Richelieu (Charlton Heston).

They fight, trade quips and romance the ladies (Raquel Welch in particular). Lester offers a kind of combination of old-fashion swashbuckling action, with some very funny physical comedy. The combination plays like an old silent film (adventure or comedy will do). I'm sure Dumas purists would object, but why quibble? It's fun!
