Despotic King Louis XIV discovers he has a twin brother who has grown up under the tutelage of his foster father, the patriotic musketeer D'Artagnan.
In 'Alexandre Dumas pere''s novel, The Vicomte de Bragelonne, Philip is substituted for Louis XIV for only a short time before regaining the throne and re-imprisoning his brother. In this film, Philip is successfully made a permanent substitute. Subsequent adaptations of the book have more closely followed this film than the original novel, sometimes even crediting this film's screenplay as their basis as well.
Bravery is only great when there is no chance.
In a scene with King Louis XIV and Mlle. de la Valliere, they are talking as they are seated together. In that scene, Mlle. de la Valliere's necklace is long, yet in a closeup the necklace almost looks as if it was a a different one, because it sits high up on her neck.
The credits are printed into a old book. A unseen male hand pages through it.
