I'd like to see a movie that stays true to the facts and characters in the book (The Three Musketeers). The one with Gene Kelly followed some of the plot, but of course Gene Kelly didn't look much like a real musketeer and Lana Turner looked too sweet. And perfect.

Read the sequel, "Twenty Years After". It's even greater.

Nice author, but the movies never follow his books truly.

I remember reading The Three Musketeers and The Count of Monte Cristo in high school. I think it was sophomore year. We also read Hugo's Les Miserables and The Hunchback of Notre-Dame, my favorite.

Well, which is it!? Does one individual get to hoard all the meaningless wealth, or does everybody get such a measly sum they can't live off of it?

Geez, I wish I'd gone to your high school. We read Grendel and The Awakening and more Shakespeare than I can shake a pointed stick at.

Why movies never truly follow book about The Three Musketeers? Cause lie even a sweet juicy lie is more visible on a big screen.

Didn't Dumas write The Lady of the Camellias in which he wrote, "Women sometimes allow you to be unfaithful to their love; they never allow you to wound their self-esteem.” I especially love how Marguerite told Armand Duval, one of the men who kept her, that if you want a woman's love, feel for her emotionally. Marguerite Gautier said to Armand: If men knew what they can have for a tear, they would be better loved and we should be less ruinous to them.” I think like Thomas Hardy and Leo Tolstoy Dumas loved the woman who falls desperately in love and to her peril.

Alexandre Dumas, Dumas père, --whose quotation from "The Three Musketeers" suggested the camaraderie of the four of the elite corps serving as guards for Louis xiii (early 17th century)
wrote an unfinished novel published first in book form translated to English in 2007 under the title "The Last Cavalier", a Napoleonic novel full of historical veracity.

How is it that little children are so intelligent and men so stupid? It must be education that does it.

Yes but it wasn't this Dumas who did it, it was actually his son - Dumas, Alexandre(Dumas fils), 1824–95.

Yes, Kenturner1, I, tool love this forum. The responses are so varied and interesting. And thank you, RamufAznag, for correcting me. So it was his son. How interesting that a son followed in his father's foot steps.
