D'ARTAGNAN

famous Musketeer, Captain of the King's Royal Bodyguard. He

is still handsome at mid-life, still erect, unambiguous in

his courage and his loyalty.

He rides past a knot of angry beggars, moving through the

streets breaking windows and scavenging for food. When they

see d'Artagnan, some throw rocks at him. They sail by

d'Artagnan's head; he ducks them with the fluid grace of a

boxer dodging punches, and keeps on riding.

OUTSIDE THE CATHEDRAL

D'Artagnan rides into the courtyard of a grand old residence

beside Notre Dame Cathedral. Priests are dispensing food to

beggars gathered in the courtyard. As d'Artagnan reins his

horse to a stop the wretched people stare with contempt at

the royal symbols on his uniform. But d'Artagnan is not a

man anyone would be quick to confront; as he dismounts and

moves toward the doorways the people part for him.

He pauses as he sees, parked to one side of the old

residence, a big rickety carriage. D'Artagnan smiles.

D'ARTAGNAN

Porthos too!

D'Artagnan hears drunken feminine giggles echoing down the

staircase of the tower above him.

INT. PRIESTS' RESIDENCE - A STAIRWAY - DAY

Four people are moving up a winding stairway; three are

women, bosoms spilling from their gaudy dresses; the fourth

is PORTHOS, the former Musketeer, now a nobleman of great

wealth and even greater girth. He and the women are drinking

wine as they stagger up the stairs, the women towing Porthos

like rowboats tugging a ship to dock. Porthos is not so

drunk that his hands fail to find pleasant places to grip

their bodies as they walk and giggle.
