On this swashbuckling episode of FURTHER REEDING we’re diving into Richard Lester’s incredibly entertaining 1973 action comedy THE THREE MUSKETEERS, starring Michael York, Frank Finlay, Richard Chamberlain, Raquel Welch, Christopher Lee, Charlton Heston and – of course – Oliver Reed as Athos. Playing a character who is a heavy drinker and fighter might not have been a stretch for Reed, but he still got up to plenty of trouble on-set and we go through some of the more memorable stories and incidents that occurred during filming. We also chat about sword-fighting, blunderbusses, the origins of the term “musketeer” and so much more. CHECK IT OUT!
