Summary:
A rousing retelling of the adventure classic with Anthony Andrews as the foppish English nobleman who masquerades as the dashing Scarlet Pimpernel to rescue French aristocrats from the guillotine during the Reign of Terror. This sumptuous new version (there had been five movies made of the tale previously) won an Emmy Award nomination as Outstanding Drama Special and one for production designer, Tony Curtis (not the actor, but the noted British art director). Phyllis Dalton won an Emmy for her elegant costume designs.
