Three Musketeers

Question: If Countess de Winter's fleur-de-lis brand is on her left shoulder, how did she manage to keep it hidden from Athos during their entire marriage? Were they never intimate?

Chosen answer: They were most likely intimate, but until modern times, it was typical for men and woman to always maintain their modesty by never being completely nude in front of someone, even their spouse. The Countess was probably always partially clothed whenever they were intimate. Marital relations were usually confined to the bedroom, in the dark, and after retiring for the night. Aristocratic women also dressed privately, assisted by a lady's maid. At one time, people even bathed while partially clothed. The Countess may also have used some cosmetic treatment to help cover the brand.

Question: Is D'Artangne's gold sword the same prop sword which Ignio Montoya used in The Princess Bride?

Answer: No. Inigo's sword has a jeweled hilt. D'Artagnan's is not jeweled.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Chris O'Donnell and Kiefer Sutherland are riding in the forest together, they are both on white horses. Kiefer Sutherland's white horse gets killed, and he later rides into Calais on a brown horse. In a later scene when the four are riding together to gather all the Musketeers, there are sometimes three white horses and one brown horse, and sometimes there are four white horses.
