The Scarlet Pimpernel
Baroness Orczys novel about the ridiculous English aristocrat Sir Percy Blakeney, who is also secretly the Scarlet Pimpernel, has been filmed several times.
This version of 1934 with Leslie Howard in the lead role as the Scarlet Pimpernel, whom in skilful disguises risks his body and soul to save the innocent victims from Madame Guillotine, is the most famous.
