Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Few Italian filmmakers turned out lavish costume dramas with as much panache as Riccardo Freda. In Il Figlio D'Artagnan, Piero Palmermini stars as Raul, the son of swashbuckler D'Artagnan of Three Musketeers fame. Unlike his famous father, Raul has no deep abiding love for swordplay, but before long he's fighting side-by-side with his dad against the foes of Cardinal Richelieu (a good guy this time out). D'Artagnan Junior also finds time for romance with several buxom wenches. The screenplay for Il Figlio D'Artagnan is credited to one "Dick Jordan," which sounds suspiciously like one of director Freda's many aliases.
