Robert Lafleur (Scaramouche) is an actor in 18th century France who spends most of his time, including when he should be on stage, light-heartedly having love affairs and generally enjoying life. One day, a marquis visits him and asks him questions about the birth mark on his shoulder. To cut a long story short, Robert Lafleur is not who he always believed to be, but before taking his rightful place, he has to charm quite a few ladies, save his lady-love from the villains, appear in various disguises, fight some duels and thoroughly enchant the viewer in this utterly enjoyable cloak and dagger movie.
Gérard Barray is the perfect Scaramouche, always a twinkle in his eye and a laugh on his lips!
"He was born with a gift of laughter and a sense that the world was mad." (what the author Rafael Sabatini wrote about Scaramouche)
