In this feature-length abridgment of the 1933 serial The Three Musketeers (1933), three Foreign Legionnaires (Clancy, Renard, and Schmidt) who refer to themselves in song and banter as the Three Musketeers fight renegade Arab forces under the mysterious El Shaitan. Rescued from a surrounding force by army pilot Tom Wayne, they support Wayne as he tries to uncover the identity of El Shaitan, who is smuggling guns into Algeria in hopes of creating a full-scale revolution. Only by going undercover as a member of the Devil's Circle can Wayne learn the secret of El Shaitan's identity.Written by

Released in 1946, this feature is cobbled together from a 12 part 1933 Mascot serial, THE THREE MUSKETEERS, and purports to be based upon the classic work by Dumas, with the action transferred to the Sahara and involving a struggle of the French Foreign Legion opposite a secret group of Arab villains, with John Wayne's character mentioned in the script as D'Artagnan to a trio of guardsmen. The original serial is grotesquely silly, and this synthesis is, if possible, even worse, with situations and dialogue that are numbingly puerile; however, if the film lacks any direction whatsoever, the viewer cannot fail but be amazed at the athletic equestrian stuntwork of Yakima Canutt and his crew of worthies, actively and dramatically superior as they are to the remainder of the performers.
