The Man  in the Iron Mask


1977 : The Man in the Iron Mask
L'Homme au masque de fer (fr)
Directed by Mike Newell
Starring Richard Chamberlain & Patrick McGoohan
Louis Jourdan as D'Artagan



The Man in the Iron Mask is a 1977 television film loosely adapted from The Vicomte de Bragelonne by Alexandre Dumas and presenting several plot similarities with the 1939 film version. It was produced by ITC Entertainment, and starred Richard Chamberlain as Louis XIV and Philippe, his twin, Patrick McGoohan as Nicolas Fouquet, Ralph Richardson as Jean-Baptiste Colbert, Louis Jourdan as D'Artagnan, and Ian Holm as the Chevalier Duval. Jenny Agutter plays Louis XIV's mistress, Louise de la Vallière and Vivien Merchant appears as Queen Marie-Therese. It was directed by Mike Newell. Although a made-for-TV movie, actual locations in France were used for filming, including the Château de Fontainebleau and Fouquet's actual chateau of Vaux-le-Vicomte for the final ball scene.
