Format: DVD
I took a chance and purchased this dvd purely based on your reviews. I must say that I am simply enamored by this movie. Yes, it differs to the book but it is certainly forgivable. One simply has to understand that it is based on two of Baroness Orczy books and then it all falls into place.
Now, for the movie. Anthony Andrews as the foppish/valiant Sir Percy was excellent. I thought he delivered an exceptional performance. I could not find any fault in his performance especially since the book Percy is so inane and a complete idiot...well, at least, his alter ego in any case. At times, it is so amusing to watch him, especially when he tries to undo Chauvelin. **smiles** I cannot say enough about his performance. When he is also conflicted by his love for Maguerite and his cold treatment of her, it is also beautifully done. His expressions are so real. His concern for the families of the aristos adds such a beautiful side to his character as well. You can actually see that he cares.
Jane Seymour as Maguerite was wonderful as well. The chemistry between her and Anthony Andrews was superb. They conveyed so much fire simply by a glance.
Ian Mckellan was also good. I must admit that when I realized he would play the villian that did not sit well with me (I love him as Gandalf but he really looks different out of the wizard's costume), however, it worked out well.
In conclusion, I thought this was a splendid movie. The sets, the music, the dances, etc were all engaging. There was never a dull moment. I actually ordered the film for my mum since I figure she would love it as well. Though I have never seen any of the other versions, I cannot imagine another one uprooting the love I feel for this one. It would be demmed near impossible.

The original program aired on CBS as a 2 part, 4 hour mini series, which I have on VHS, commericals included. Total running time for the mini series was approximately 170 minutes. However, for syndication, CBS reduced this to a 2 hour movie, for a running time of 86 minutes. I was very pleased to see the running time of 136 minutes but unfortunately there is about 30 minutes, mostly the amazing choreographed sword play scenes which are still missing. I would have rated this 5 stars if the DVD showed the mini series in its entirety.

The storyline although different from the actual book, still made the movie enjoyable. Have been enjoying the VHS version for many years-DVD made it better!

Format: DVD
When the first second of the first scene shows you little cubes instead of people's heads, the walls, and the torches, you might think the DVD transfer has some problems. When not even the letters in the credits stay stable, you begin to wonder whether you wouldn't be better off buying an old VHS copy and turning it into a tiny-sized Divx file. ARRRRGH!
Which breaks my heart, because this version of The Scarlet Pimpernel is one of my all-time top ten movies. I'd be rating this with one star if the movie wasn't five-star. Too bad I can't actually see it!

I just got my copy today. The movie is in full screen format. The quality of the transfer is not exactly the best - it looks a lot like VHS on a high definition TV. I had to turn up the sound much more than usual. But the story is still great and very entertaining - even years after first seeing the movie on TV.

My order went very well. Received with no problem. Love this movie. Loved it when I first saw it. If you are new to this you may find it sappy or campy, but if you like historical romance, this is for you.

Period drama is a great look at revolutionary France. Costumes are elaborate and the locations are lush. Fun moments, as well, in between the beheadings. Have a look at this one!
