his master, the Duke of Buckingham (Simon Ward) encounters the treacherous Milady de Winter (Faye Dunaway.)

Felton, a Puritan, has left the party, and is having a nap outside Buckingham’s rooms, when he hears Buckingham
approaching. Buckingham is evidently about to get better acquainted with Milady.

Buckingham casually insults Felton for his long face, and tells him to go to bed. Felton clearly resents this
treatment.

Here, D’Artagnan (Michael York) is bringing a message to Buckingham, accompanied by his manservant, Planchet
(Roy Kinnear.) D'Artagnan needs to retrieve the Queen of France's diamonds, which she gave to Buckingham ...
but Buckingham finds that Milady used their dalliance to steal two of them.

Felton refuses to admit Planchet to the secret chamber where the matter is being discussed. There is
a bit of comic business between them.

the talks.

Determined to save the reputation of the Queen of France, Buckingham demands Felton produce first his
secretary, and then a jeweller.

Felton, a Puritan, watches and listens, clearly disapproving of the price Buckingham, King James I's Chief
Minister, is prepared to pay, to protect the reputation of the Roman Catholic Queen of France.

Later, Felton is again a silent witness to friendly interactions between D'Artagnan and the Duke of Buckingham.
D'Artagnan is given a fine sword in thanks for his services to the Queen of France.

While Michael Gothard’s character, Felton, only has a small amount of time on screen in ‘The Three Musketeers’,
the scene has already been set for his betrayal and murder of the Duke of Buckingham, in ‘The Four Musketeers.’
