Overview

Synopsis

El Gendarme Desconocido
When Cantiflas accidently captures a gang of criminals he is elevated to police officer status. ~ Jeaniff Dorset, Rovi

Los Tres Mosqueteros
The title may be Tres Mosqueteros (The Three Musketeers), but this Mexican comedy has less to do with Dumas than with its star, the inimitable Cantinflas. While visiting a movie studio where a film version of The Three Musketeers is in production, Cantinflas dozes off and dreams that he's D'Artagnan, while his three disreputable neighborhood buddies show up as the Musketeers. The plot then segues into the standard "Queen's Necklace" storyline, with our hero saving the French monarchy from the wicked machinations of Cardinal Richelieu (Angel Garasa). Almost as funny as the Ritz Brothers' sendup of the same material, Cantinflas' spin on The Three Musketeers is definite the more ribald of the two films. Best of all is the stunning cinematography of the great Gabriel Figueroa, who lavishes as much care on this farce as he would on such films as The Pearl and The Fugitive. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
