Sons of the Musketeers

Sons of the Musketeers

Lewis Allen (1951)

U Certificate


Our Score
This gloriously Technicolored hokum (called, for some unearthly reason, At Sword's Point in the USA) imagines that the offspring of the Musketeers are just as nifty with swords as their fathers. One of them is female (Athos's daughter, in fact), and played by Maureen O'Hara, who tosses her red tresses to the wind and buckles a swash as if to the manor born - an idea revived in the 1994 French movie D'Artagnan's Daughter. Co-star Cornel Wilde, himself a former member of the US Olympic fencing team, is no match for our Maureen and there's added curiosity value with Alan Hale Jr playing the son of Porthos, the character his own father Alan Hale played in the 1939 version of The Man in the Iron Mask. Splendid fun.


The three sons - and one daughter - of the famous heroes take up their father's mantles to protect the French monarchy. The death of the king has led to his son inheriting the throne while still a child, and a villainous duke is determined to exploit the situation to seize power for himself. Swashbuckling adventure, starring Maureen O'Hara and Cornel Wilde.
