Probably made to capitalize on the success of Christian-Jaque's "La Tulipe Noire" ,which was also a so-called Dumas adaptation and which also ended when the French Revolution began ;Jacques Perrin is pleasant as a reluctant hero,who,in the beginning of his new "career" ,runs THE operations from a distance.A historic figure (Le Comte D'Artois,Louis the Sixteenth 's brother) appears to help the villain but the scene in Versailles is ludicrous.
As Perrin is no match for Belmondo or Marais,as far as amazing feats are concerned,he makes up for it with a good sense of humor.The historical background is vague and thin,but why deny yourself an entertaining little swashbuckler?
