There are other versions of this movie. One of the better ones can be seen here; and one of the absolute worst can be seen here . But I choose this one because I feel it is truest to the story.. and the actors are perfect for the parts. This tale of intrigue and romance, battles and debauchery still stirs today. This is a novel, and a movie that will stand the test of time. I imagine in the future there will be more re-makes, but the 1973 version is it for me. Big Thumbs Up.

Summary from IMDB

The young D'Artagnan arrives in Paris with dreams of becoming a king's musketeer. He meets and quarrels with three men, Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, each of whom challenges him to a duel. D'Artagnan finds out they are musketeers and is invited to join them in their efforts to oppose Cardinal Richelieu, who wishes to increase his already considerable power over the king. D'Artagnan must also juggle affairs with the charming Constance Bonancieux and the passionate Lady De Winter, a secret agent for the cardinal.
