Flick Pick: The Scarlet Pimpernel

The Scarlet Pimpernel
(London Films/CBS, 1982)

Anthony Andrews in the title role, with Jane Seymour his wife, and a long pre-Gandalf Ian MacKellen as the evil Chauvelin. A good story well done all the way 'round, if you like that sort of thing, and with Percy Blakeney as the literary archtype for every hero-with-a-secret-identity tale ever since.
