SCARAMOUCHE (*****)
starring Stewart Granger
Rafael Sabatini's classic Swashbuckler! "He was born with a gift of laughter, and a sense that the world was mad!" One of the best Swashbuckler's ever made has Granger as a non-caring actor who, after the murder of his best friend, turns into a very caring man! He then studies fencing, and what comes of this is one of Hollywood's longest duels on the silver screen - excellent!!!! You just have to see this one.

TAMING OF THE SHREW (*)
starring Douglas Fairbanks, Mary Pickford.
Real life Husband and wife team up for this Shakespearean play. This is Doug's first talkie! It lacks the powerfulness of his earlier silent Swashbucklers.

THE THREE MUSKETEERS, 1921  (****)
starring Douglas Fairbanks, Sr.
The Father of all Swashbucklers in his second Swashbuckling film. These movies of Doug is what started it all! Watching this silent classic is proof of why.

THE THREE MUSKETEERS 1948 (*****)
starring Gene Kelly as d'Artagnan
Van Heflin as Athos
Robert Coote as Aramis
Gig Young as Porthos
Vincent Price as Richelieu
Lana Turner as Milady de Winter
Perhaps one of the best Swashbucklers of all time! This story goes pretty well along with
Alexandre Dumas' novel - but there are MANY liberties taken along the way.

THE THREE MUSKETEERS 1970's (****)
starring Michael York.
A great Swashbuckling and Comical flick! Based upon the novel by Alexandre Dumas, this will please any Swashbuckling fan! This is only half the book, however. The story continues in The Four Musketeers, starring the same cast. Also, and I found this interesting, the same cast filmed another version of the Musketeers' story twenty years after these two, called The Return of the Musketeers, and it is based upon Dumas' sequel called: Twenty Years After. I thought that was neat!

THE THREE MUSKETEERS 1991 (*****)
starring Chris O'Donnell as d'Artagnan
Keifer Sutherland as Athos
Charlie Sheen as Aramis
Oliver Platt as Porthos
Disney's version of the classic. A great film, though lacking in many ways. This has to be seen by all Swashbuckling fans.

TROY (*****)
starring Brad Pitt
This one surprised me. I didn't imagine Brad Pitt as to being the Swashbuckling type, but - hey! - he did an excellent job!! I loved this movie, and I reccomend it to all Swashbuckling lovers everywhere. My favorite scene is at the beginning when Brad took that large soldier out with one stroke! That was awesome!!

READ WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT DONAREE:

"Nicely done. I really enjoyed the history in the introduction and the duel is well written. Best of luck with the novel!" ~ Author David Lee Summers, author of five books: Vampires of the Scarlet Order, The Solar Sea, and the "Old Star" science fiction series: The Pirates of Sufiro, Children of the Old Stars, and Heirs of the New Earth. www.davidleesummers.com

"Very exciting read! Felt like I was there witnessing the action!" ~ Candle Artist Jfay,
www.studio3bonline.com

"I really enjoyed the humour and really laughed, not at Monsieur de la Donaree but with Monsieur de la Donaree! I dont know if you wrote it in this spirit but if you had a bit of Molière in you, I would not be surprised! He knew how to study people and would turn situations into a comic play! I laughed out loud, this is a gem! Not only de la Donaree is a fine sword, he has also a fine nose when it comes to pinpoint personalities, I'm talking about the Inkeeper and his situation with the wife here!! The second part is indeed in pure swashbuckling spirit, in rhythm and enthusiasm! And the end is a cliff-hanger! The beginning is "cocasse" (funny) as they might have said then in Gascony, and witty! Indeed Alexandre Dumas had a sense of humour too and satirically created at least one of his character ( in another book) to a character made up by Molière in one of his comic play. And Molière also took his inspiration from Dumas' s Musketeers and "The Man in the Iron Mask." I liked it! I had fun while reading this chapter about Monsieur de la Donaree, as while following the spirit of the Musketeers you gave a contemporary touch to the text!" ~ Artist Nicole Marques,

"Hurrah, Ted! I gleefully await the next installment! LOVE the romantic stuff! Bring it on! There are few things in this world I like better than a hot Viscount. Keep going, Ted! Bravo! Keep writing! I can't wait to read more! But it is par for the course as I am also a writer. Keep in touch!" ~ Author Genella de Grey, author of "Remember Me."

"Wow - What a wonderful beginning. As a whole, you have a unique way of writing & you captivated me by a few sentences peaking my interest to continue. For instance: ...hazed by the early morning mist...I love it! I look forward to reading the next chapter. You've gained my interest. That was impresive & informative. You've still got the hook in & I'm dangling to hear more. Thanks for the sneak peak." ~ Aspiring Author R.F.Taylor: Rianna

"Well done. Chapter One entices the reader craving more. I will look for The Adventures of Monsieur de La Donaree the Musketeer on the web. Keep up the excellent writing..." ~
