Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

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.
