Did you know?
Cardinal Richelieu says to d'Artagnan that he has no personal enemies, only enemies of France. This line is in neither the original novel, nor the script. Charlton Heston came across this quote of the Cardinal's when researching the role, and asked Richard Lester to find a place to include it in the film.

In reality, George Villiers, 1st Duke of Buckingham (28 August 1592 - 23 August 1628) was indeed assassinated in a similar fashion, but by a disgruntled army officer who was wounded in one Villiers military campaigns and not by his deceived protestant manservant. Also, there were claims (or slanders) that the Duke was the lover of his close friend and then king, James I of England, and not the Queen of France.

In the film, Milday is executed as in the original novel; in the film's novelization by Michael Hardwick, after she has murdered Constance Athos corners her and uses the pistol he threatened her with earlier.

At the time movie takes place (early 1600s) firearms were either matchlocks or wheellocks, or flintlocks. So the musketeers and their rivals using matchlock muskets is correct, but Lady de Winter's percussion pistol wouldn't be invented until the 19th century.

D'Artagnan: [holding Milady at bay with the point of his sword after she has tried to stab him with a poisoned dagger] Try that again and I'll cut some fleur-de-lys on the rest of you!

Cardinal Richelieu: [to D'Artagnan] I don't make such an offer twice in one day. But if you should survive to return to Paris, then you may see my hand stretched out to you once more. For then, you would be a very remarkable young man indeed. I would remark on it to people.
