The Scarlet Pimpernel is set in 1792, during the early stages of the French Revolution. Marguerite St. Just, a beautiful French actress, is the wife of wealthy English fop Sir Percy Blakeney, a baronet. But she becomes disillusioned with her husband, believing him to be a shallow fool. Percy, in turn, has reason to believe ill of Marguerite, and the couple becomes increasing estranged.
Meanwhile, the League of the Scarlet Pimpernel, a secret society of 20 English aristocrats, is engaged in rescuing their French counterparts from the daily executions during the Reign of Terror. Their leader, the mysterious Scarlet Pimpernel, takes his nickname from the drawing of a small red flower with which he signs his messages. Despite being the talk of London society, only his followers know the Pimpernel's true identity. Like many others, Marguerite is entranced by the Pimpernel's daring exploits...
