    Adventures of the Scarlet Pimpernel: The Complete Series




    Marius Goring, one of British cinema’s most gifted and versatile actors, brings his remarkable talents to the role of the enigmatic adventurer risking his life to save innocent French aristocrats from the guillotine during  Robespierre’s revolutionary Terror. Switching between the flamboyant Pimpernel and his foppish, outwardly simple alter ego Sir Percy Blakeney with consummate ease, Goring is ably supported by Patrick Troughton in another of ITC’s mid ‘50s swashbuckler series which, though not seen in sixty years, easily holds its own alongside stablemates The Adventures of Robin Hood, William Tell and The Buccaneers.

    This classic adventure series also features a guest cast that includes Robert Shaw, Christopher Lee, Conrad Phillips, Ivor Dean, William Franklyn, Alfie Bass and John Laurie.

    The Original TV Pimpernel

    I was more than happy to see the release of "Adventures of the Scarlet Pimpernel" at long last [thought it would never happen]. It is indeed, one of the ITC swashbucklers & on a close paar with the likes of "The Adventures of Robin Hood" or "William Tell". It is a shame that only 18 episodes were made.
