  The Scarlet Pimpernel on DVD [read more]
  They seek him here, they seek him - oh, there he is
  STARRING Oscar-nominee Leslie Howard (Gone With The Wind, Pygmalion) as the legendary master of disguise in Harold Young’s thrilling take on Baroness Orczy's classic adventure story, The Scarlet Pimpernel (U) is released on DVD on 15 August 2016, RRP £9.99, courtesy of Network’s The British Film collection.

Also featuring Oscar-nominees Merle Oberon (Wuthering Heights, Berlin Express) and Raymond Massey (Abe Lincoln in Illinois, East of Eden), the film is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

Every bit the foppish English gentleman, Sir Percy Blakeney's foolish demeanour is a mere cover to conceal his true identity as the 'Scarlet Pimpernel' – daring saviour of French aristocrats during Robespierre's Reign of Terror. With the villainous Chauvelin desperate to track him down, a plan is soon put into action which threatens the life and liberty of Sir Percy's beautiful wife in the hope of putting paid to the Pimpernel's exploits once and for all. The DVD of sequel The Return of the Scarlet Pimpernel is out on the same date.
