Again returning to one his favorite tales, Alexandre Dumas' THE THREE MUSKETEERS, Allan Dwan directs the Ritz Brothers in a generally faithful musical comedy version of the classic, which stars Don Ameche as D'Artagnan.The young D'Artagnan journeys from his native Gascony to join the King's musketeers in Paris. Enroute, he is insulted by three of their number, Athos, Porthos, and Aramis. When they offer satisfaction, he schedules a duel with each of them, but the musketeers get drunk while waiting, and the Ritz Brothers steal their clothes. When D'Artagnan arrives to duel, he and the Ritz Brothers are attacked by the guardsmen of Cardinal Richelieu (Miles Mander), whom they successfully fight off. Later that night, D'Artagnan encounters Lady Constance (Pauline Moore) while she is accompanying the Queen (Gloria Stuart) to a romantic assignation with the Duke of Buckingham (Lester Matthews), the enemy of the French. Her presenation of a brooch to her lover is seen by inkeeper Naveau, one of Richelieu's spies. The Cardinal hopes to prove the Queen's disloyalty by dispatching Milady DeWinter (Binnie Barnes) to steal it from Buckingham.
