New 2022 1080pHD Master from 4K scan of Original Nitrate Technicolor Negatives
THE THREE MUSKETEERS (1948)
BD50
COLOR
126 Minutes
Aspect Ratio 16x9 1.37 with SIDE MATTES
Audio Specs DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 MONO

Special Features: Vintage “FitzPatrick Traveltalks” Short- “Looking at London”- Vintage Tex Avery Cartoon “What Price Fleadom” (HD) Vintage MGM Radio Promo with Lana Turner, Original Theatrical Trailer (HD)
Gene Kelly stars as the swashbuckling young French nobleman D'Artagnan who, possessing nothing more than his title, travels to Paris to join The Three Musketeers. D'Artagnan no sooner arrives in the capital, than he insults Athos (Van Heflin), Porthos (Academy Award winner Gig Young) and Aramis (Robert Coote), the most feared of the musketeers. Challenged to a duel by each, D'Artagnan earns their respect with his courage, if not by his fighting prowess. But his courage, skill and wit are quickly needed to help the musketeers thwart a plot by the powerful Prime Minister Richelieu (Vincent Price) to overthrow King Louis XIII (Frank Morgan), save Queen Anne (Angela Lansbury) and win the heart of Lady de Winter (Lana Turner). This all-star frolic was a box-office hit as M-G-M and director George Sidney pulled out the stops to bring together its finest talents, and now it's been restored and remastered for its Blu-ray debut.

Wow! I've seen this on the big screen and it is scrumptious. And June Allyson dies!

Without giving too much away (haven’t seen this version yet, but read the book a long time ago), if she plays the character I think she plays, I have to say I’m surprised MGM included that part.

The book was already 100 years old when the movie premiered. That plot point wouldn’t have been considered a spoiler even on opening night. :D
I never read the book and if it wasn't for me already seeing different versions, I would thought of it as a spoiler.

Wow, this is great news! I've been hoping for this one for years and years. Gene Kelly does his own stunts, of course, and he's at the top of his game. The Three-Strip Technicolor negative should make this spectacular. Laughs, romance, drama, action, and adventure. And what a cast!

To me it’s like saying that Bambi’s mother dies is a spoiler. The issue is that a lot of younger people today just aren’t well-versed in literature and these old movies are completely new to them. When Gone With the Wind first came out on Blu-ray I was really surprised at the large number of forum members who had never seen the movie.

Well, I will forever blame Mr. Charles M. Schulz for ruining a great movie for me. In one Peanuts strip, Linus was
watching Citizen Kane and Lucy comes in and says "Rosebud was the sled." I probably read that strip 20 years before I ever got around to watching Citizen Kane and her words rang through my ears the whole movie. And of course I knew Darth Vader was Luke's father because I stupidly read the novelization of "Empire Strikes Back," which appeared a week before the actual movie.

To me that's not a good analogy, but I get your point.
