“The Three Musketeers”  (1973)

THE 3 MUSKETEERS -  6

In what could be described as the best slapstick swashbuckling action picture ever, Richard Lester’s “The Three Musketeers” includes a hilariously elaborate set-piece where a chess match is played on a giant “board” with dogs and monkeys.  What could go wrong?  This entertaining classic also features an all-star cast that includes Michael York, Oliver Reed, Richard Chamberlain, Faye Dunaway and Raquel Welch.  Directed by Richard Lester.
