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 many woman to always maintain their modesty by never being completely nude in front of someone, even their own husband. The Countess may always have been 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. She 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.

Visible crew/equipment: In the fight scene on the stairs near the end of the movie, the camera shot looks up and there is a security camera mounted up in the corner. (01:29:40)
