The Scarlet Pimpernel
Korda’s swashbuckling portrayal of "‘the English master of disguise" includes a strong performance from the lead, Leslie Howard and Merle Oberon’s timeless portrayal of disgruntled wife Marguerite, as well as lavish images and subtle caricatures.
Sir Percy Blakeney, alias the Scarlet Pimpernel, affects the mannerisms of an ineffectual London Society fop to conceal his dashing escapades as saviour of French aristocrats from the guillotine during the French Revolution. After a series of foiled executions, the wily Chauvelin (Raymond Massey) is bent on unmasking the “damned elusive Pimpernel”.

Paris is under the heel of Robespierre. Hundreds die at the guillotine. The only hope of the condemned is not reprieve – but rescue by the League of the Scarlet Pimpernel, an organisation founded by Sir Percy Blakeney. Sir Percy Blakeney is semi-retired, having promised his wife Marguerite he will take no more risks in France after his last hair-raising escapade. But Robespierre wants him captured, and Chauvelin entices him to France with a complex plot involving Spanish actress Theresa Cabarrus (Margaretta Scott) and her lover, liberal Deputy Tallien, which culminates in Marguerite’s abduction.
