Storyline

A lad jousting with his tutor is kidnaped and carried to the Bastille where his head is locked in an iron mask. Jump ten years: Musketeers return from war in Morocco to find Paris starving while Louis XIV and his retinue idle at Duke Fouquet's estate. Louis is enamored with his host's virginal daughter, Valliere, herself in love with Athos. The queen mother calls the Jesuit Aramis to her deathbed to confess that Louis has a twin, "a second born, he was first conceived, the oldest and true heir," the man in the iron mask. Aramis secures his release and hides him while Porthos and Athos school him for his destiny. D'Artagnan remains loyal to Louis: love, schemes and politics entwine. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

1998???
3 August 2006 | by joachimt-IMDBSee all my reviews

Last month I bought a cheap DVD-box with 10 different movies. One of them was "The man in the iron mask". According to the info on the box it was the version with Richard Chamberlain and Ian Holm from 1977. Two great actors so I became very interested. During the movie I became more and more disappointed. Such a lame attempt to tell such a great story. And above all ... which version did I have bought. Production-year 1977 could be right, but no sign of Richard C. and Ian H.. So I went searching on IMDb: Not the 1985-version? Maybe 1968? No way I suspected this movie was made in the late 90's. Unbelievable!! How is it possible, that people actually put money in such a production. It seemed like the filmmakers tried to make the movie look bad.

So ... avoid this one!! ... and watch carefully when buying cheap DVD-boxes.
