Three Musketeers

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)

Continuity mistake: In one extended scene, Chris O'Donnell is talking with someone. Almost every time the camera comes back to him, the ties on his shirt are first crossed, then uncrossed, etc.

Factual error: Not long into the film, D'Artagnan jumps in some hay. There's a flag of the province of Qu├ębec (Canada) visible in the background. This film is set in France at a time this flag didn't even exist.

Trivia: Paul McGann plays both Girard (the man out to revenge his sister's honor) and the Cardinal's Guard who is killed by D'Artagnan out by the city ruins.

Trivia: Gabrielle Anwar had to have her costumes made bigger as she was pregnant throughout the filming.

Athos: You go back and you tell the Cardinal we will continue to perform our sworn duty, which is to protect the King, and we will use every means within our power to fight him.
Rochefort: Bold words. I look forward to ramming them down your throat.

Athos: Only a fool would try and arrest us twice in one day.
Guard: You're under arrest.
Porthos/Aramis: A fool.
Guard: Are you coming peacefully or do you intend to resist?
Porthos: Oh, don't be so stupid, of course we intend to resist. Just give us a moment.

Porthos: Go home. Find a wench. Raise fat babies and have a good, long life.

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.

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.
