Action-packed tale of three loyal swordsmen and an eager recruit who battle enormous odds and enemies to protect the King of France.
Best buddies Mickey, Donald, and Goofy are small-time janitors with big dreams of becoming Musketeers. Poachers threaten a fifteen-foot-tall gorilla, but when he is moved to the safety of an animal conservancy, happiness is short-lived.
In these violent pages all is action, intrigue, suspense, surprise—an almost endless chain of duels, murders, love affairs, unmaskings, ambushes, hairbreadth escapes, wild rides. It is all impossible and it is all magnificent. Few, if any, characters in fiction inspire one with such belief in their individual existences.
Dumas rampaged through the history of France, inventing, changing, distorting—doing whatever was needed to produce a tale to hold the reader breathless.

Arriving in Paris to join the Musketeers, D'Artagnan uncovers the Cardinal's plans, and the four set out on a mission to protect King and Country. I love this movie for its humor and tempo and of course because of the nice actors, but what I discovered last vacation made my day.
We visited Vienna, Austria and we, my husband, my son Erik and me went to see an underground lake close to Vienna in a town called Hinterbruehl and they told us that this movie was filmed there and I saw the boat used by Cardinal Richelieu Tim Curry There are also still prison scenes where the musketeers run through following Richelieu to be seen. It used to be an plaster mine that when it closed was used in the 2nd WW for building airplanes.
They still have to drain a lot of water everyday to keep it a touristic attraction. You get a tour in a boat and the water is very clear and cold, but very beautiful.
