The Fifth Musketeer is a 1979 film adaptation of the last section of the novel The Vicomte de Bragelonne by Alexandre Dumas, père, which is itself based on the French legend of the Man in the Iron Mask.
It was directed by Ken Annakin, and stars Beau Bridges as the twins, Sylvia Kristel as Maria Theresa, Ursula Andress as Louise de la Valliere, Cornel Wilde as D'Artagnan, Ian McShane as Fouquet, Rex Harrison as Colbert (Philippe's tutor), and Lloyd Bridges, José Ferrer and Alan Hale, Jr. as the Three Musketeers. Olivia de Havilland made a cameo appearance as the Queen Mother. This was de Havilland's final theatrical film.
The cinematographer was Jack Cardiff.
In what may have been an instance of stunt casting, Alan Hale Jr. played the same character, Porthos, that his lookalike father, Alan Hale Sr., did in 1939's The Man in the Iron Mask.
