They Seek Him Here, They Seek Him There, Is He in Heaven, or is He in Hell?
This is a story of spies, traitors and death by guillotine during the French Revolution, but it is much more. It is the story of a grand love affair, a grand marriage, gone so wrong it might never be righted. Leslie Howard is wealthy Sir Percy Blakeney, one of the wealthiest Lords of London. Merle Oberon is his wife, Lady Blakeney, a French girl, now one of the most famous women in London, thanks to her royal husband.
As our adventure opens, we discover that citizen Robespierre has overthrown the government of France, and is methodically killing every French nobleman, along with their entire family. One brave Englishman and twenty good Brits sneak secretly into France and rescue as many families as they can from the dreaded Guillotine.
We soon learn that Leslie Howard, as Sir Percy Blakeney, is the elusive bandit of souls, spiriting families secretly out of France and away from death on the guillotine. Unfortunately, his lovely French wife is a spy for the French, and she is determined to discover and reveal the secret identity of the Scarlet Pimpernel. Lady Blakeney has been blackmailed and threatened with death by the French Ambassador to England. He warns her that she will never be free until the Scarlet Pimpernel is dead, and he is very correct. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn drizzled with plenty of warm melted butter and enjoy the show.
