Production synopsis Before Batman there was Zorro, before Zorro there was The Lone Ranger. And before any of these there was the original mysterious superhero. The Scarlet Pimpernel.
A classic swashbuckling tale of adventure and romance, our elusive hero, Percy Blakeney and his followers are the toast of English society. They are also the arch nemesis’ of revolutionary France. Showing great daring and aided by a band of brave comrades, Blakeney disguises himself as the formidable Scarlet Pimpernel to transport endangered French Aristos to the safety of England.
