The Scarlet Pimpernel

Filmed in Prague for its similarity to 18th Century revolutionary Paris (and lack of satellite dishes), this BBC mini-series of Baroness Emmuska Orzcy's 1905 novel stars Richard E. Grant as the eponymous anti-revolutionary. Martin Shaw is the ruthless Chauvelin sent to England to discover the Pimpernel's true identity, and Elizabeth McGovern is the beautiful Marguerite inadvertently caught between the two of them.
