* {{Mondegreen}}: Thanks to its large number of memorable songs, this was one of the richest sources of Mondegreens for its time. "Pourquoi pas" (French for "why not?") was interpreted variously as "pol-klopa" (Russian for "half a bedbug") or nonsensical non-words like "purklapa" or "kuklafa". Purely Russian lyrics weren't free either: "krasavitse i kubku" ("to the beautiful woman and the cup") is often misheard as "krasavitse Ikuku" ("to the beautiful woman Ikuku").

* AgeLift: The King, The Queen and Monsieur de Treville are all twentysomethings in the book but played by middle aged actors.



* MurderTheHypotenuse: Milady ''claims'' this was the reason she poisoned Constance. Wierdly enough this scene is absent from the book even though the whole romantic plot between d'Artagnan and Milady was cut out from the movie.

* EasyEvangelism: Apparently the woman he was sent to kill claiming to be of one faith with him is enough to convince Felton to turn against his master and kill HIM instead. In the book it takes weeks of [[ManipulativeBitch careful and well-thought manipulation]] on Milady's part to convert him to her side. In the movie she pulls it off in ''minutes'' of one emotional scene.

** Madame de Chevreuse from ''Twenty Years After'' is a composite of her book counterpart and Madame de Longueville.



** [[PlayingGertrude Inverted]] in the sequel with Madame de Chevreuse. Olga Kabo was 22 when the production started - far too young to [[spoiler: have a 15-year old son]].
