The Comte de Gonzague schemes against his cousin, the Duc de Nevers, even though he is the Duke's heir and will inherit his estates. The Count has kept secret the existence of the Duke's bastard, recently born. When the Duke learns of his child, he journeys to wed the mother, a baron's daughter, in her father's isolated chateau. The occupants of the castle are surprised and murdered by the Count and his men. The only ones to escape are the Duke's friend, the skilled swordsman Lagardère, and the infant, a girl, now the rightful heiress to the Duke's vast fortune. The Count believes the pair to have drowned, when in fact they have been concealed by a travelling troupe of Italian players. Twenty years pass. The Count has discovered that the two survive and seeks to have them slain. But Lagardère gains the confidence of the Count, and employment as his bookkeeper, through his clever disguise as a hunch-back...

Allan C (it) wrote: I remember thinking this film was just awesome when it first came out. It still holds up as a good piece of entertainment, but the 40something in me had a harder time overlooking huge plot holes and gaps in logic. Still, it's got some good action and to story of SFX creator, Bryan Brown being hired by the FBI to fake a mobsters death so he can go into the witness protection program, but is then double crossed and set up to be the fall guy. Brown is good in the lead and this was probably the first film I'd seen him in, but I definitely know this was the first film that make be think that Brian Dennehy is awesome, who plays a curmudgeonly and resourceful cop who doesn't buy the dirty FBI agents stories. Diane Venora is another actress who I've always liked and has a small part as Brown's girlfriend. You've also got Cliff De Young, Mason "Smuckers" Adams, Jerry "Be Our Guest" Orbach, Tom Noonan, Joe Grifasi and look fast for Angela Bassett as a TV reporter. Director Robert Mandel is someone who I think is an underrated action director. He's like a Phil Karlson or John Badham; not an auteur but someone who consistently directs quality entertainment. If you can suspend you disbelief long enough, this is still a pretty fun film.
