The Three Must-Get-Theres

Parody of Douglas Fairbanks' 1921 film The Three Musketeers. Of course, this is not Max, the dapper and loveable upper-class twit, who (like the less lovable twit, Basil Fawlty) usually sees his grand schemes crash and burn. Instead, here we get American-style comic hero, in the tradition of Keaton and Lloyd, Bugs Bunny, and Eddie Murphy: the wise guy that usually ends up winning, while making the opposition look foolish. And it is a different type of humor, relying less on Linder's comedic skills, more on anachronisms, goofy swordplay, and quirky supporting characters.
