The Fifth Musketeer is a 1979 film adaptation of the last section of the novel The Vicomte de Bragelonne by Alexandre Dumas, père, which is itself based on the French legend of the Man in the Iron Mask.

It was directed by Ken Annakin, and stars Beau Bridges as the twins, Sylvia Kristel as Maria Theresa, Cornel Wilde as D'Artagnan, Ian McShane as Fouquet, Rex Harrison as Colbert (Philippe's tutor), and Lloyd Bridges, José Ferrer and Alan Hale, Jr. as the Three Musketeers. Cameo appearances were made by Ursula Andress as La Valliere and Olivia de Havilland as the Queen Mother. This was de Havilland's final theatrical film.

Sylvia Kristel was dubbed by another actress, as in so some of her other films. Ursula Andress (who was also often dubbed) goes undubbed in the scene she shares with Kristel.

The cinematographer was Jack Cardiff. Cardiff and the director Ken Annakin both died on April 22, 2009.
