Corrected entry: In the scene in which D'Artagnan visits Athos for first time in the film, Athos tells him that when he was young, musketeers used to wear black uniforms (in the time the film is set musketeers/bodyguards wear blue ones, as we can see many times). In the scene near the end, when Aramis and Porthos trick the guard in Bastille dungeon by telling him that they have a prisoner, he lets them in, although they wear black uniforms. It is impossible that the soldier would not know that the style of musketeers' uniforms has changed.tymrym
Corrected entry: When we see the exterior of Philippe's original prison, there is a shot of a cloud moving extremely quickly from left to right, as if someone dragged it across the screen so the full moon could be shown.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the Musketeers and Philippe are in the Bastille getting ready to charge the King's Musketeers and they put their blades together, look at Philippe's foot (as he inserts his own sword). His shoe is brown leather, and you can see the shoelace and a round greenish (quite modern) design on the side.
Corrected entry: Just before the big battle scene, when everyone crosses swords on the ground, someone (I think Leo) is wearing white tennis shoes.
Corrected entry: I'm sure everyone knows that the movie was based upon a true incident in France at the time of King Louis XIV. What people do not know however is that the prisoner, originally did not wear an iron mask, but instead wore a leather mask. There was also two guards in the cell with him all of the time and were ordered to kill the prisoner if he ever took his mask off.
Corrected entry: When Philippe is in training to be king, at one point he looks at an ornate, high-heeled nobleman's shoe, and laughs at it. Why would he laugh? That was just the style of the day, and it's doubtful he would think twice about it. Men had been wearing high-heeled shoes for forty years before the film takes place - obviously long before Philippe was born. There's no reason why this style should seem strange to him, even after being locked up for six years. In addition, one of the Musketeers is laughing at the shoe also, which makes even less sense. A bit of twentieth century ideology imposed on a seventeenth century story, maybe?Krista
Corrected entry: After helping Phillipe escape, the mask is sent to Louis. But back at the house where Phillipe is preparing is revenge, one night he "actually tries the mask one last time," saying that he had it for so long, he's kind of used to it (or something to that effect). How can the mask be at two places at the same time?
