The Man In the Iron Mask, by Alexandre Dumas, is certainly a top production when you consider the settings. If only it had been shot in color it would rival any other pageantry put out by Hollywood. 30-year-old Louis Hayward was excellent at portraying the twin heirs to France's throne. Hayward easily makes us want to wring his neck for being so conspicuouly superior to all other people. Hayward as Phillipe is every likable. I can't say the same for those portraying The Three Musketeers: They were fat looking, aged, and far from dashing. d'Artagnan wasn't dashing at all. Princess Maria Theresa is from Spain but I expected some kind of accent that was missing. But Joseph Schildkraut as the power hungry and treacherous Fourquet was excellent. And, there were some pretty good special effects.
