Anyone who has seen Anthony Andrews in Brideshead Revisited with Jeremy Irons and loved his Sebastian Flyte will revel in his performance as the saviour of the beleaguered French aristocracy during their revolution! :) Sir Ian is a wonderful villain; their sword fight in the 'last act' is very impressive! Jane Seymour is lovely as the romantic interest, but the men outshine her in this film!

This is an older movie, but I've always liked this version - much better than newer one. Had on VHS years ago; great to now have on DVD with improved quality.

This is such an excellent film. The cast is perfect and cannot be improved on. I just get taken up in the story and can watch it over and over. The book is excellent reading as well.

It's a rather obscure title and I didn't expect to find it in DVD form. It's an excellent example of Restoration theatre.

I like period movies and enjoyed the light touch in this one. Costumes are lovely. Not a 'great' movie, but enjoyable and nice in my collection.

The pairing couldn't have been better cast with Anthony Andrews (Scarlet Pimpernel and Jane Seymour (Marguerite) in their roles. It is a captivating movie I will continue to watch over and over and never tire of.
