“The Scarlet Pimpernel” is a tale of intrigue, romance and hilarity that is set during the French Revolution. A small group of British men, led by the mysterious “Scarlet Pimpernel,” rescue French aristocrats from the guillotine. Everyone becomes curious to know the identity of the dashing hero – including an emissary of the newly established French Republic, sent by Robespierre himself. Diversions, blackmail, swordplay and tomfoolery ensue as people try to solve the mystery.
