Weekend Video Clip: The Scarlet Pimpernel

For movie fun, there’s little that beats a good swashbuckler. Too little recognized in this genre is the 1982 move of The Scarlet Pimpernel with Anthony Andrews (who was also brilliant in the 1981 Brideshead Revisited) and Ian McKellen. Which among other things features this final duel. (Begins at 2min, 20sec.)

  1. Brilliant? Sink me! I couldn’t agree with you more.

    Loved this cheekier version of Leslie Howard’s film.

  2. I have the VHS tape of “The Scarlet Pimpernel” and still watch it over and over. Much better than Leslie Howard’s version. Anthony Andrews was great. I wish PBS would air “Brideshead Revisited” again. Mr. Andrews was excellent in that one as well!
