The Scarlet Pimpernel
"They seek him here... they seek him there..."
It is the bloody height of the French Revolution. Men, women and children are put to death under the blade of the remorseless Guillotine, all to feed a baying mobs lust for blood and murder. Their only hope of salvation comes from a band of 20 brave men from across the channel. Noble daredevils who seek to snatch Madame Guillotine's prey from her clutches, all in the name of sport and excitement.
Twenty men; nineteen to obey, and one to command.
And that one, hated and hunted by the French Republic, known throughout all of Europe as the most daring, the most cunning member of that band. Identified only by his tell-tale signature:
The Scarlet Pimpernel!
