      Bob Thomas Associated Press A big cast, brilliant color and lots of action have been combined for entertaining results. Jun 20, 2019 Full Review Grant Watson Fiction Machine This is breezy, competent fare for a Sunday afternoon: entertaining, but undistinguished. Rated: 6/10 Nov 30, 2022 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy Director George Sidney rarely finds a consistent rhythm for his picture -- the 1973 version does a far better job of effortlessly switching between heavy drama and swashbuckling shenanigans. Rated: 2.5/4 Feb 19, 2022 Full Review Nell Dodson Russell Minnesota Spokesman-Recorder Gorgeous technicolor, plenty of action. Lana Turner as the evil, ill-fated Countess De Winter -- WOW! Jan 14, 2022 Full Review Jesús Fernández Santos El Pais (Spain) Conventional love stories, an odd sense of humor, double agents, honest people, and valid traitors are all featured in George Sidney's adaptation of this story.

      Elvis D Esta clásica adoptación de Los Tres Mosqueteros es una estupenda película que se gana el honor de ser considerada una joya clásica. El guion es muy bueno, con una ingeniosa trama que combina elementos de acción, drama, romance y hasta humor de la época. Es una de esas películas antigua que se pueden admirar por su producción, montaje, vestuario, elenco y guion. A pesar de que se pueden notar unas pocas escenas que son claramente fingidas, eso no impide que la película sea admirable. Tiene un magnífico elenco que incluye al muy conocido Vincent Price. La banda sonora puede no ser algo memorable, pero suma bastante que incluyera fragmentos de la popular composición romántica "Romeo And Juliet" de tchaikovsky. Los Tres Mosqueteros (1948) es otra joya que todo cinéfilo o amante del cine clásico tiene la obligación de ver y admirar. Mi calificación final para esta película es un 9/10. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 11/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Great movie I love it Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review camille l Les films avec Gene Kelly sont toujours plus durs à regarder lorsque ce dernier ne danse pas et Les Trois Mousquetaires de George Sidney ne déroge malheureusement pas à la règle. Très soigné, des décors aux costumes en passant par la musque et l'interprétation, Les Trois Mousquetaires traîne cependant un peu en longueur et cet assemblage pas original pour un sou de péripéties répétitives finit par lasser bien avant la fin des deux heures. Il y a bien Vincent Price pour cabotiner un peu et Gene Kelly se débrouille plutôt bien dans les scènes musclées, mais cela fait assez peu pour un film qui manque quand même cruellement d'intérêt. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Between 2.5 and 3 stars. Cast is spectacular, but the conventional treatment of the action makes this story just the classic 50s adventure story. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review dave j Rare non musical Gene Kelly movie playing as the fourth musketeer D'Artagnan adapted by the Alexandre Dumas novel 14th movie adaption according to wikipedia starting from 1903. The other musketeers are Van Heflin as Athos, Gig Young as Porthos and Robert Coote as Aramis. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member The Three Musketters 1948 I think that very quickly once the film begins it is easily noticeable that this film looks very pretty in Technolocolr This film has A very large and well regongized cast of actors who either were well known or became very well known in cinematic history including Gene Kelly as D'Artagnan Lana Turner as Lady de Winter June Allyson as Constance Bonaciex Vincent Price as the cardinal Richelieu Frank Morgan as King Louis XIII Angela Lansbury as Queen Anne This film is Directed by George Sidney. George Sidney did an excellent job The costumes look so elegant, colorful, and feel like royalty compared to other musketter films. They appear clean and staged rather than believably lived in. The first sword fight was interesting in that the musketeers fight in a park by trees and water fountains and monuments. We see one of them jump over each other climb and run and jump off trees. It is an open area with plenty of places to go. The action includes some crazy choreography and stunts which look amazing and fantastic but they don't look necessarily believable that they would happen in reality in a fight. It has a different vibe from the other Musketeer films. It has slap stick comedy, the tragedy is never really seen but expressed through shadows, blood, or told by people through expressions and tricks to avoid seeing any blood. The D'Aragnan's fight towards the end was turned into a Warner Brothers slap stick fight. I was surprised to see a young Angela Lansbury portray Queen Anne. I was not counting on that going into this film. We also see Frank Morgan who played the the Wizard in the Wizard of Oz portray King Louis the XIII in this film. I like the cuts for the action scenes. It gives the impression of quickness and is able to keep the audiences attention. I like the low angles in this film when we see Vincent Price as the Cardinal Richelieu as the villain. It gives this impression of power, and villainy. I like the silhouettes as the musketeers are seen riding on their horses leaving for England to try and retrieve the diamonds for the queen. The chase and fight to get towards England you can tell when they are by the ocean that they are in California. Some of the stunts and jumping onto the horses seem unbelievable and fantasy like in a cartoon way that don's seem believable. This film is able to maintain a good passà (C) as it is constantly on the move and does a good job on the cuts to show different perspectives of the scene. I think that it does a good job on casting, stunt work, sets, lighting, and costumes look elegant and idealized even if not accurate depictions. The action and poses remind me of Errol Flynn characteristics to a film. The lighting and shadows reminds me of the look I may see in a early Disney film like Snow White, Pinocchio, or Dumbo. I was not satisfied by the results to the ending of this film since I felt like the Cardinal Richelleu portrayed by Vincent Price was still in power capable of using his powers for wrong. I was surprised by how little we saw of Cardinal Richelleu in this film. It is very little. Outside of the sets when it came to the landscapes near the ocean or wide open areas it became easy to identify that they were not of France but shot in California based upon the geography of the rocks, trees, and cliffs.
