Pimpernel T-Shirt

Back in the day when The Scarlet Pimpernel musical was on Broadway, there was a group of fans who came together known as "The League."   Someone designed and made up special shirts with a list of inside jokes relating to the show and the actors involved.  I've held on to mine for quite a while, but I put in on Ebay last week.  For some reason, I can't post the direct link anywhere, but if you search under Scarlet Pimpernel Musical Douglas Sills, you should be able to find it.   Its up for about two more days.

Percy and Marguerite



I am a die hard Scarlet Pimpernel fan.  I read the book and many of its sequels, not to mention the movies, tv show, and parts of the musical.

Does anyone know any really good Scarlet Pimpernel fics???  Preferably about Percy and Marguerite.

Hi all! Here are a few icons. If anyone has any other Pimpernel pictures they'd like made into icons I'd love to do it. :D (I hope this is allowed on here... Just let me know if it isn't.) Please leave any comments/requests you have over on my journal. ;)

maybe sprout wings


(no subject)

I've been attempting to write a real post on this for a couple minutes, but since my brain refuses to grammar right now, I'll just cut to the friggin' chase:

What are the things that you believe a quality Pimpernel screen adaptation must (or must not) change/include/just do in general? We've done some dreamcasting here, but I don't know that we've discussed this in particular (or, if we have, please point it out to me, it's been a while). Casting's fun and all, but they could get the living embodiment of Percy Blakeney and it wouldn't mean squat if they wreck everything else.

Some sad Pimpernel '82-related news: British film director Clive Donner dies at 84.

A bit of more upbeat news, not directly Pimpernel related: Leslie Howard personal film footage found by documentary-maker.

Percy and Marguerite


From The New York Times

A fairly scathing review from the NY Times, with many unkind words about the stage production.

It does include a nice photo of Fred Terry, though!


Everything said here was repeated again nearly a century later, when the musical ran on Broadway. And yet, this was after dozens more books, multiple movies, and, of course, Fred Terry's delightfully-long run as Sir Percy.

Critics, regardless of the time period, just don't seem to get it.

1955 tv series

1. Has anyone seen the 1955 tv series version of the Scarlet Pimpernel? Is it worth pursuing?

2. I just realised how appropriate my icon is to Sir Percy. XD

3. Would anyone be interested in a vampire chronicles fic where Sir Percy is basically the master vampire of London? I ask because I'm currently working on one.
