Overview
A&E's lavish adaptation of the swashbuckling adventure stories, based on the books by Baroness Emmuska Orczy, bring passion and intrigue into the sweeping world of the dashing Scarlet Pimpernel.

It is the height of the French Revolution's Reign of Terror, and Sir Percy Blakeney (Richard E. Grant), has a secret. By day, he is just another foppish British aristocrat. By night, he becomes the legendary Scarlet Pimpernel, a "caped crusader" for the 18th Century. With sparkling wit and brilliant disguises, he forms a secret league of followers which includes his wife, Lady Marguerite (Elizabeth McGovern), to fight against the tyrants of the French Revolution and to save the innocent from Chauvelin, the bloodthirsty leader of the French revolution, and "Mademoiselle Guillotine."

Each brilliantly adapted story leads to danger and intrigue culminating in a tale of secret identities where no one is who they appear to be.

Box set includes:
The Scarlet Pimpernel (94 min.)
The Scarlet Pimpernel: Mademoiselle Guillotine (100 min.)
The Scarlet Pimpernel: The Kidnapped King (100 min.)
