“The Iron Mask” is a silent, black-and-white movie from 1929. The story is told in dialogue captions. It is about the conspiracy of a cardinal who hides the fact that the Queen of France has given birth, not just to one son but to a set of identical twins. He is afraid that the two sons will vie for the throne, and the contention will end in a revolution. Will the four musketeers save the day?“The Iron Mask” is an unforgettable masterpiece of its time. Although the story is serious in nature, it has a comical side to it at times. We award it the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages, although some viewers may get bored with this classic.
