The Fighting Pimpernel Wikipedia »
The Elusive Pimpernel is a 1950 British period adventure film by the British-based director-writer team of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, based on the novel The Scarlet Pimpernel (1905) by Baroness Emmuska Orczy. Despite having been shot in color, it was released in the United States in black and white and retitled The Fighting Pimpernel. The film stars David Niven as Sir Percy Blakeney (aka The Scarlet Pimpernel), Margaret Leighton as Marguerite Blakeney and features Jack Hawkins, Cyril Cusack and Robert Coote. Originally planned to be a musical, the film was re-worked as a light-hearted drama, not entirely successfully.
