Louis Hayward had played the dual role of the imprisoned prince and his twin in the 1939 version The Man in the Iron Mask while Alan Hale, Sr. portrayed Porthos, and in what may have been an instance of stunt casting, the same part was subsequently played by his lookalike son Alan Hale, Jr. in Lady in the Iron Mask thirteen years later.
