The Return of the Musketeers
Directed by Richard Lester
Director Richard Lester (Juggernaut) reassembled his original cast of swashbucklers from 1973’s The Three Musketeers and 1974’s The Four Musketeers: Milady’s Revenge for 1989’s The Return of the Musketeers, a sumptuous, action-packed adventure. Twenty years ago, D’Artagnan (Michael York, The Island of Dr. Moreau), Athos (Oliver Reed, The Hunting Party), Porthos (Frank Finlay, Robbery) and Aramis (Richard Chamberlain, The Thorn Birds) executed the beautiful but lethal seductress Milady de Winter. Now, Milady’s ravishing daughter Justine (Kim Cattrall, Sex and the City) has vowed revenge. Meanwhile, Athos’s adopted son Raoul (C. Thomas Howell, The Hitcher) has grown to manhood and when he and Justine meet, swords and sparks fly. Can the four musketeers stay one step ahead of Justine while they race to foil a cunning political plot? For dazzling swordplay, lavish costumes, dangerous romance, breathless excitement, and a generous dose of comedy, The Return of the Musketeers is all for fun and fun for all! The stellar cast includes Christopher Lee (The Oblong Box), Geraldine Chaplin (Doctor Zhivago), Roy Kinnear (The Bed Sitting Room), Philippe Noiret (Coup de Torchon), Billy Connolly (Absolution), Aldo Sambrell (Navajo Joe) and Jean-Pierre Cassel (Army of Shadows) as Cyrano de Bergerac.
