The Three Musketeers (1973)
A young swordsman comes to Paris and faces villains, romance, adventure and intrigue with three Musketeer friends.
This is an absolutely brilliant resource for the dress, setting and manner of the period, as well as being entertaining.
An interesting look at the operation and firing of this age's most common firearm.
A comedy performed by Rowan Atkinson, and Stephen Fry, about the capture and execution of King Charles I.
This film shows the events of the English Civil War, upon which our Age of Cavaliers in Edwin is loosely based. Oliver Cromwell (Richard Harris) is a Puritan member of the English parliament, whom must lead his army and overcome both the corrupted Parliament and the obstinate King Charles I, (Alec Guinness) to end the tyranny of both over the people of England.
Whilst the film has some inaccuracies, such as Cromwell's propositions of democracy, and his outright refusal to become King, the majority of errors are minor technical things that were changed for dramatic purposes. The costumes won the Academy Award for Best Costume Design, and it really shows, the language is understandable but recognisably 17th century, and the settings across England are useful for people wishing to RP in this Age. On top of that, it's a very entertaining film with some wonderful perfromances by Harris and Guinness.
