This six-reel adaptation of Dumas' The Three Musketeers was produced by Anglo-American Films, which should give one a pretty good idea regarding its country of origin. According to contemporary reports, the film was able to accommodate the entire Dumas novel in his 75-minute running time, beginning with D'Artagnan's initial foray into Paris and ending with the execution of the treacherous Milady DeWinter. First filmed in 1911 by the Edison company, The Three Musketeers would be adapted to the screen innumerable times in the future, with actors as diverse as Douglas Fairbanks Sr., Gene Kelly, and the Ritz Bros. taking a crack at the Dumas original. Unfortunately, this 1914 British version seems to have long since disappeared.
