Under the Red Robe 1937 80 NR 2.5 out of 5 ducks
1620s France. Rebels are still fighting Cardinal Richelieu 50 years after the Massacre of St. Bartholomew in 1572. Cardinal Richelieu spares the life of a convicted duelist Gil de Berault, if he captures Edmond, a duke and the leader of the rebelling Huguenots. Gil and a sidekick of sorts assigned by the Cardinal, set out on their search, find the duke's castle and Gil becomes smitten with Lady Marguerite (the duke's wife). Marius proposes ratting out the husband to the Cardinal, who'll hang the guy, and Gil could then get Lady (and there's some diamonds running around for the taking, too). But it seems the woman pretending to be the wife whom Gil is smitten is the unmarried sister of the duke, and the real wife is pretending to be the sister (thus, the woman Gil is interested is single, not married to the duke). Gil finds the duke, tells him he is to arrest him and take him back to Paris; troops break into the castle and the duke surrenders to Gil. Lady tries to buy the duke out of Gil's custody using the diamonds, he tells her how he was under the gallows himself, and tells her she can find a ship at Bordeaux, and she and her brother are to take it. Gil plans to return to Paris, and willing to pay the penalty of death to let the duke go to preserve his honor. Lady goes to the Cardinal and pleads to spare Gil's life; he arrests her for having seduced his agent (Gil) from his duties. Marius goes ahead to announce the capture, but Gil stays back; news reaches him that the Cardinal is out of power. Gil goes to Paris with Marius; the king arrives to congratulate the Cardinal on getting the duke to flee, leaving the rebels without a leader -- and without bloodshed. Gil speaks to the Cardinal, Lady joins him, and they read a note from the king decreeing the two of them retire to a castle together. Moving film reel
