Review by anonymous (posted on 13-Feb-2007)

I was raised watching Louis Hayward movies. Man in the Iron Mask was one of the best. The Three Musketeers, the Count of Monte Christo, and the Saint as well were all amazing swashbucklers that were full of action before action movies were a hit. Louis Hayward took this part of the twins to the classical heights of movie making. His fellow actors played their parts so well you thought you were watching history. I wish these "Louis Hayward movies" would be found and replayed so all other generations could enjoy them. we would all be in for not only a movie great, but movie history! Please, Please, Please bring them back!
