The Iron Mask is a 1962 French-Italian movie directed by Henri Decoin and is based on the 1850 novel The Vicomte of Bragelonne: Ten Years Later by Alexandre Dumas. King Louis XIV's twin brother was held on a Mediterranean island for many years and was only brought to Paris now that the king had fallen ill so that he could be swapped with his brother if necessary. But he manages to escape and is now wanted as an enemy of the state. Fortunately, he has the support of the aging D'Artagnan, who has won many a battle in the past.

The following weapons were used in the film The Iron Mask:


Queen Anne Flintlock Pistol

What appears to be a Queen Anne Flintlock Pistol is briefly seen carried by one of one guard on Île Sainte-Marguerite island. A same-looking pistol is also wielded by Henri (Jean-François Poron).
