Now Showing on Cable: “The Three Musketeers”

Alexandre Dumas first published “Les Trois Mousquetaires” in 1844. It tells the tale of a young man who travels to Paris in order to join the Musketeers of the Guard, a light cavalry unit charged with protecting the King of France. The tale has become a classic, still widely available in print today, and has seen iterations in nearly every form of media there is; there have been tv shows, radio programs, video games and of course numerous films.

For his once proud, wonderful, but currently offtracked career -
Mentionless here for evermore.

So the brightening of the silver screen brought hope the movie
Thrilled me – filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;

This it is, and nothing more,’
