Sir Percy Blakeney, a foppish Englishman, decides to rescue imprisoned aristocrats before they can be executed.

Showing great daring and aided by a band of brave comrades, he disguises himself as the formidable Scarlet Pimpernel.

But will his beautiful French wife Marguerite unwittingly prove his downfall?
