Pimpernel Smith

A re-telling of The Scarlet Pimpernel, with the enemy as Nazi Germany. Based on his role as Ashley Wilkes in “Gone with the wind” I never understood Leslie Howard’s heartthrob status but here I see what all the fuss was about. This man does Smooth.

If you like this, but aren’t quite ready to haul out your Sound of Music DVD, you can either try Night Train to Munich (Rex Harrison in the Leslie Howard role) or Richard E Grant coming up against Martin Shaw’s wig in the BBC’s Scarlet Pimpernel.
