The Face of Alexandre Dumas: The Man in the Iron Mask

Synopsis: 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.

But that food is spoiling.

That's why it wasn't

sent to the army.

Then you must hurry.

What an excellent idea,

Your Majesty.

Look at that stitching!

Don't they look glorious?

Not so glorious as you.

Who is that?

Raoul, the son of Athos.

Franois, you may like

young soldiers,

but I'm referring

to the beauty with him.

Her name is Christine.


Your Majesty?

What now, d'Artagnan?

Assassins falling from the sky?

I was not told

of the pig chase.

Look at these men's faces.

Howthey admire you.

With you protecting me,

what fool would try to harm me?

A fool's blade can be

sharper than his brain.

Let us play a game.

Let's pretend that I am king

and you are captain

of my Musketeers.

Pretend my wish is law,

and my wish is

to enjoy this party.

As should you.

[King Louis] Ladies!


ever since I arrived...

- Monsieur? Mademoiselle?

- No, thank you.

- Christine...

- Raoul!


Captain, may I present

Christine Bellefort.



is my father's best friend.

I am honoured

you granted my request

to join the Musketeers.

The honour is mine.

One for all...

And all for one.


I love you.

And I love you, Raoul.

I'll never be rich,

but you have my heart.

Then I am richer than the King.

I have something to give you...

[Shrill squealing]

[Louis] We offer a contest

of cunning and agility.

Behold our unicorn!

Whoever captures our unicorn,

shall win its treasure.

Now, to the chase!

I command you all!

The pendant will be yours!

Christine, isn't it?

I'd have thought it impossible,

but the excitement of the chase

has made you more beautiful.

Sire, I...thank you.

You blush.

You do not wish to look

beautiful for your king?

No, sire! I mean...yes...

Of course, sire!
