Marius Goring, one of British cinema s most gifted and versatile actors, brings his remarkable talents to the role of the enigmatic adventurer risking his life to save innocent French aristocrats from the guillotine during Robespierre s revolutionary Terror. Switching between the flamboyant Pimpernel and his foppish, outwardly simple alter ego Sir Percy Blakeney with consummate ease, Goring is ably supported by Patrick Troughton, Stanley van Beers (as ruthless Minister of Police Chauvelin), Lucie Mannheim (The 39 Steps) and Alexander Gauge (The Adventures of Robin Hood). This classic ITC adventure series, also featuring a guest cast that includes Peter O Toole, Christopher Lee, Conrad Phillips and Robert Shaw among others, was originally broadcast in 1956.
