(1921, Fred Niblo) “One for all and all for one!” 38-year-old Fairbanks effortlessly portrays the innocence and naïveté of the young D’Artagnan, as he and his comrades-in-swords contend with non-stop intrigue and mass duels at the court of Adolphe Menjou’s Louis XII.
Approx. 107 min. 35mm.
“When Alexandre Dumas sat down at his work table, he no doubt had only one end in mind: to create a story for Douglas Fairbanks. Never has a famous character from a famous novel found finer treatment in a movie… Not only is the physical grace and superb poise there but also the intense fire, the animation of spirit that was so vital a part of Dumas’ magnificent hero.”
– Robert E. Sherwood
“The key difference between Fairbanks and all who have followed is that he was that larger-than-life personality he portrayed in his films, while others are simply acting like him… Fairbanks’s d’Artagnan in The Three Musketeers was the role he was born to play.”
– Jeffrey Vance
