Synopsis: The Musketeers try to replace the cruel and evil King Louis XIV with his twin brother Phillip, who has been imprisoned with an iron mask to hide his identity.
Fact: There really was a man imprisoned with a mask during King Louis XIV reign but it's believed to be his father.
Trivia: The success of The Man in the Iron Mask was due to Leonardo DiCaprio and the release of Titanic four months earlier.
Movie Mistake: There is a portrait of King Louis XIV around the age of fifty hanging in Louis's room. King Louis was only in his twenties when this story takes place.
My Take: I thought, and still do, that this was Leonardo DiCaprios best performance. This is a real fun film with one of those amazing casts that only comes around every so often.
