The Three Musketeers
The abundant talents and resources of Alexandra Dumas, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, the Technicolor company and Lana Turner's couturier contribute just about equally to the over-all effect of Metro's splendiferous production of Dumas' "The Three Musketeers. And for those who enjoy a surfeit of such flashy and fleshy displays, there isn't the slightest question that here is a heaping dish. And that prophecy does not lose sight of the comparatively pleasing job done by Gene Kelly in the leading role of the gay and athletic D'Artagnan. As Dumas' magnificent hero who virtually assumed the task of shielding the weak King Louis against the dark machinations of Richelieu, Mr. Kelly may not seem precisely the gentleman portrayed in the book but he is a fair comprehension of a vigorous and genial young man. Not since Douglas Fairbanks swung through the air with magic ease and landed on balconies and beefsteaks has a fellow come along who compares with that robustious actor in vitality and grace.
The Three Musketeers is a film directed by George Sidney, written by Robert Ardrey, and starring Gene Kelly and Lana Turner. It is a Technicolor.

Dumas's novel has appealed to filmmakers of the world ever since the beginning of commercial cinema. In this country alone, there have been many different films based on Dumas's masterpiece. Some versions remain reasonably faithful to the novel, while other versions use some of Dumas's general plot outlines, or the characters, or the era, and then stray variously from the novel itself. One of the early films which was based on The Three Musketeers starred Douglas Fairbanks, probably the most famous "swashbuckling" actor of the silent film industry. In fact, this movie almost singlehandedly set the tone for the Douglas Fairbanks-style of acting which has, in one way or another, influenced later productions and acting styles for similar movies. That is, Fairbanks was filmed swinging from chandeliers, brandishing swords, perilously crossing deep, craggy ravines, fighting against insurmountable odds, and performing other improbable feats of bravado and bravery.
