What a swashbuckler!,
This review is from: Scaramouche [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This is one of the greatest action adventure films ever made. The swordfights are absolutely breathtaking (it has been said that this is the best ever fencing film) and the cast are all first rate. Something that struck me particularly now that I am older, and was watching the film for the first time in thirty or forty years, was how good Mel Ferrer was as the sadistic 'villain' (when you're younger, you tend to focus more on the hero and don't notice the other roles so much). If you have a taste for romance and adventure, and incredible, thrilling swordplay, buy this DVD. You won't regret it! The reproduction of the DVD is beautiful and clear, by the way, and the DVD also contains a very interesting interview with Mel Ferrer about the making of Scaramouche.
