Trivia

There have been many film and television adaptations of Baroness Orczy's "The Scarlet Pimpernel", the novel which introduced Sir Percy Blakeney to the public. She also wrote other tales about him which were somewhat less popular or well-remembered, and this mini-series is based on two of them, "The Elusive Pimpernel" and "Eldorado". See more »

Desperately seeking Percy
13 November 2004 | by wifeofbathSee all my reviews

The most romantic Percy to date, bar none!!!!!

Looks like I'm talking to myself here, but Anton Rogers was just wonderful as the Pimpernel, and Diane Fletcher as Lady Blakeney had none of the irritating qualities - a kind of smugness seeming almost de rigueur - that have seemed to attach to every other performance of Marguerite I've seen. In fact the whole cast were splendid, with Bernard Hepton a particularly disagreeable, sinister Chauvelin.

I guess that I'll never get to see it again, what with so many versions having been made since - they just aren't as good...

of course if anyone knows of a way to access B(efore) V(ideo) footage...
