Storyline

Andre-Louis Moreau is a nobleman's bastard in the days of the French revolution. Noel, the Marquis de Mayne, a nobleman in love with the Queen, is ordered to seek the hand of a young ingenue, Aline, in marriage. Andre also meets Aline, and forms an interest in her. But when the marquis kills his best friend Andre declares himself the Marquis's enemy and vows to avenge his friend. He hides out, a wanted man, as an actor in a commedia troupe, and spends his days learning how to handle a sword. When de Maynes becomes a spadassinicide, challenging opposing National Assembly members to duels they have no hope of winning, Andre becomes a politician to protect the third estate (and hopefully ventilate de Maynes).

Trivia

Scaramouche is a roguish, burlesque clown who originated as a stock character in the 17th century Italian commedia dell'arte, where he was known as "Scaramuccia," which literally means "skirmish." He wears a black mask with a large nose who broadly grimaces and indulges in slapstick behavior and is generally beaten by Harlequin for his boasting and cowardice. He is an traditionally iconic character found in Punch and Judy shows. See more »

Assuming the pamphlet is written in French, a split infinitive is an impossibility. Unlike English, French infinitives are a single word. See more »

Quotes

Lenore: 'Scaramouche stays in LaCrosse!' How I hate you.
Andre Moreau: How I love you.

excellent entertainment!
26 March 2004 | by (Taiwan) – See all my reviews

I just love this movie, the best of its kind, excellent in every aspect. 50 years after it was made, thirty more years after I first saw it, not only I still love it, I appreciate more each time watching it again. Appreciate mostly, the Stars, there are just no more stars nowadays with such "star quality" like Granger and Parker, so exquisitely handsome, beautiful and elegant , not a bit common, never ordinary. With such star quality, the movie can elaborate as much as possible of their showmanship and the audience will never feel it is excessive, but only enjoyment. The good old Hollywood magic works at its best here.
