| A Must See Classic
Forget all other versions of this film...including the Leonardo DeCaprio version. This is a Fantastic look back at the Golden Age of Films ! I am actually watching it right now: the version which has the Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. narration.

Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. and truly a 'Cast of Thousands' run through this exciting, wonderful motion picture giving true meaning to the word 'motion' ! The cast is perfect: the heroes, the villains, the beautiful damsels, the sets, the townspeople...all interwoven into a true classic and a superb follow-up to "The Three Musketeers". Dumas himself would be proud.

Like "The Bride of Frankenstein", this sequel almost surpasses the original and for film buffs and historians this is truly a 'must see' film.

Perhaps, in this age of 'short attention spans', maybe some younger viewers won't be able to stick with this film. Silent, Black & White, some over-acting involved. BUT, if you fasten your seat belts, grab a big bowl of popcorn and a large soda or two, and, maybe a "Three Musketeers" Candy Bar for a special tie-in treat, you will laugh, you will cry, you will be impressed. AND, you will take a wonderful trip back in time to the Golden Age of Hollywood...and you WILL ENJOY !!
