The Scarlet Pimpernel!! (Just for fun…)

I read The Scarlet Pimpernel years ago and enjoyed it.  It appears to have drawn quite a few fans even though it was written a hundred years ago.  I had not known that there were several books in the series (they are going on my e-reader as I type) and since I enjoy swashbucklers and intrigue, I think I’ll be enjoying them.

There have been several movies, starting (in my experience) with the one starring Leslie Howard as The Pimpernel.

I love costume dramas.

How could I not?

“Sink me!”

Derring-do, an unexpected hero masquerading as a fop, 

A beautiful heroine (who wears some smashing hats!) who does not know that her husband, whom she loves, loves her to distraction… 

Danger, deceit, swords…

Escapes from the guillotine – a formidable (and rather sexy) villain (here with words from the musical – sung by Terrence Mann –  combined with a montage of video clips)…

What more can anyone want?

How about a test to see where you fit in?
