The Scarlet Pimpernel (1934)
Howard and Merle Oberon in The Scarlet
Leslie Howard and Merle Oberon both succeed in displaing their telents to the utmost advantage in this film, where Regency England and Revolutionary France provide such an excellent background. Comedy and drama, following hard upon one another, produce that atmosphere of heroism and breath-taking adventure which made Baroness Orczy's book so famous. The part of Chauvelin is taken by Raymond Massey, whose portrait is No. 40 of this series.
