The Man in the Iron Mask script
Synopsis: The Man in the Iron Mask is a 1998 American action drama film directed, produced, and written by Randall Wallace, and starring Leonardo DiCaprio in a dual role as the title character and villain, Jeremy Irons as Aramis, John Malkovich as Athos, Gerard Depardieu as Porthos, and Gabriel Byrne as D'Artagnan. The picture uses characters from Alexandre Dumas' D'Artagnan Romances and is very loosely adapted from some plot elements of The Vicomte de Bragelonne.

PORTHOS:

Ah ha! Here we are! Aramis!

Porthos is here!

They reach a doorway. Porthos kicks it open, staggers back,

and begins shoving the women inside.

INT. A PRIEST'S APARTMENT - DAY

The first of the partying women tumbles inside; she stops

short at what she sees. The second and third stumble in

after her and they too stop dead still, sobered by what they

see. Then with a great roar Porthos barrels in.

PORTHOS:

Aaaaaaaramis!! Porthos is --

He stops dead in his tracks. From the POV OF PORTHOS AND THE

WOMEN, we see ARAMIS. Always the most theological of the

Musketeers, and ruthlessly brilliant, he is still lean and

powerful. And still handsome, or at least he would be; but

now he kneels before a single candle at a private altar,

wearing sackcloth and ashes in penitent prayer.

PORTHOS:

Sorry, my dears. You would have

enjoyed it too. He's hung like a

donkey.

WENCH 1

So are you.

PORTHOS:

Really? I haven't been able to see

it for fifteen years. Go on now,

leave His Holiness alone. I'll

bring you back tomorrow when he's in

a better mood.

He whacks their bottoms, herding them out, then swaggers to

Aramis, heaving himself to a seat beside his praying friend.

PORTHOS:

Please revel with me, Aramis, I need

my spirits lifted. I'm old, I'm

weak, my strength is gone --

ARAMIS:

Be quiet, you fat fool. Can't you

see I'm praying?

PORTHOS:

I just said you're praying! Are you

deaf too? I know you're blind,

because if you had seen the tits

that just walked out of here, you'd

have tears in your eyes.

ARAMIS:

(trying to ignore him)

There are more important things than

tits.
