Le Masque de fer was a French film directed by Henri Decoin, released in 1962 and inspired by the story of the Man in the Iron Mask, as well as the novels by Alexandre Dumas: The Three Musketeers and Le Vicomte de Bragelonne.


Mazarin gives d'Artagnan the mission to rescue the imprisoned brother of Louis XIV.

In a scene not in the original book, d'Artagnan grabs Isabelle de Saint-Mars, pulls up her dress, and spanks her to punish her for not keeping a promise she had made.
