Once that had become established on release of the first 'The Three Musketeers ', litigation followed, however it explains the wonderful consistency that exists between both films.
Publication years are estimates, as all three novels were serialized prior to being released in single volumes.
The story was a little more serious, and some of main characters are eliminated, but it is good to know that the first movie had a continuation into the second movie.
The lush soundtracks that were composed by Michel Legrand and Lalo Schifrin are respectively both available on a brilliant Compact Disc release, so all in all a definite must purchase, especially if you are a fan of both films, like me, and well worth adding to your Blu-ray Collection.
Another point to make is that the fight scenes were choreographed by a trained swordsman.
A 1933 serial starred John Wayne and replaced the Musketeers with French Foreign Legionnaires.
