Best of Elegance of Fashion: The Scarlet Pimpernel Review

UK DVD Box Art
Ah, the time that I first watched The Scarlet Pimpernel. I had heard good things about it and I think those good things were deserved. Really, this is an underrated movie in the media today and is definitely worth a watch. See what I said about it! (Make sure to leave comments in the review).

From my review:
So, here is the long awaited review! Why did I watch The Scarlet Pimpernel? Well, I noticed a lot of my blogging friends really enjoyed The Scarlet Pimpernel. I didn't know very much about it (I did know that it was a precursor to Zorro -- by the way, I enjoyed the 50s Disney series of Zorro), but everyone that I had mentioned that I hadn't seen it to said that I would really enjoy it. So finally I got to watch it on Youtube. And now, my long awaited review.
SynopsisDuring the Terror of Paris, many members of the aristocracy are sent to the guillotine, but a number of them are saved by someone called The Scarlet Pimpernel. The true identity of the Scarlet Pimpernel is Sir Percival Blakeney, a man who pretends to be a fop (or in other words, a dandy) in order to conceal his identity as the Scarlet Pimpernel. He falls in love with an actress named Marguerite St. Just, the sister of a man that he defended in a fight. Marguerite's "friend", Citizen Chauvelin, wants to become the head of national security and is certain that the capture of the Scarlet Pimpernel will get him the position.

  1. This movie is SO good. Love it despite being the kind of girl who usually prefers the re-make.
