Product description

Product Description

An Eighties remake of the classic tale about the elusive 18th Century adventurer. Sir Percy Blakeney (Anthony Andrews), an English fop, is in reality the Scarlet Pimpernel, scourge of the French Revolution and rescuer of the aristocracy from the executioner's guillotine. When he saves Armand St Just from street thugs, he meets and falls in love with Armand's beautiful sister, Marguerite (Jane Seymour). He cannot, however, reveal his true identity to her.

From Amazon.co.uk

It's tough trying to beat the 1934 version of the popular adventure-romance story, starring Leslie Howard as the 18th-century British hero who poses as a fop in London society but runs a secret mission to rescue the doomed in Robespierre's Paris. But this 1982 television version, starring Anthony Andrews (Sebastian Flyte in Brideshead Revisited) as the Pimpernel and Jane Seymour as his beloved but estranged wife, is quite a treat. Andrews and Seymour expertly capture the essence of a relationship suffering from misunderstandings and elusive passion, and there is plenty of crackle to the action sequences. Clive Donner (What's New, Pussycat?) brings some strong cinematic qualities to this television presentation. --Tom Keogh
