The cruel King Louis XIV of France has a secret twin brother whom he keeps imprisoned. Can the twin be substituted for the real king?
MGM discovered the audience the movie attracted was "directly related to appeal of Leonardo DiCaprio", being 55% female and 46% under the age of 25.
Lt. Andre: Magnificent valor...
It's been pointed out that, since the twin brothers were not really fathered by Louis XIII, neither would have a claim to the throne and Louis would not be king to begin with. However, since the origins of the twins' birth was clearly unknown to any (excepting the real parents) in the film, including the twins themselves, this is highly irrelevant.
When Philippe is in prison and Aramis comes disguised as a hugely fat friar to hear his confession and offer mass, Philippe kneels down and makes the sign of the cross. When the movie was released on VHS, Philippe's making the sign of the cross was left out.
