Storyline

During the French Revolution, a mysterious English nobleman known only as The Scarlet Pimpernel (a humble wayside flower), snatches French aristos from the jaws of the guillotine, while posing as the foppish Sir Percy Blakeney in society. Percy falls for and marries the beautiful actress Marguerite St. Just, but she is involved with Chauvelin and Robespierre, and Percy's marriage to her may endanger the Pimpernel's plans to save the little Dauphin.

One of the greatest movies ever!
13 March 2000 | by (Utah) – See all my reviews

I absolutely loved this movie! The first time I saw it I was totally on the edge of my seat. It's not a movie where you can predict what happens next. Anthony Andrews, Jane Seymour, and Ian McKlellan are wonderful! I would recommend The Scarlet Pimpernel to anyone and everyone. It has suspense, romance, adventure, it's absolutely incredible! I could watch it everyday and never get sick of it!
