Touché, pussy cat

Yet another (post-Thanksgiving) Caturday is upon us, and since I’m still digesting, I’ll keep it simple by reminiscing about the good old days of wholesome, family entertainment.

I will admit that I don’t think I’ve seen many of the gazillion movies on the Three Musketeers – so which one is the best and why? The latest version with Legolas and Joan of Arc has a bit of a steampunk vibe.

Suggested readings:

  • Dumas, Alexander. The Three Musketeers. 1844. Many free English editions.
  • Courtilz de Sandras. Memoirs of Monsieur d’Artagnan. Free 1898 English edition.

And if you like fantasy novels, Steven Brust had a good series in a Three-Musketeers-type world, with mostly Hungarian-sounding titles like Taltos.
