Richard Grant returns to his role as the foppish British aristocrat who leads a dangerous double life in this second Scarlet Pimpernel movie.
At a party thrown by the Blakeneys in London, the Marquis du Rochambeau, an old friend of Marguerite's, arrives with a story of woe and a plea for help in rescuing his daughter, who is trapped-though safe-in France, with the Revolutionary authorities looking for her. The Pimpernel immediately undertakes a mercy mission, but once in France, he is nearly undone by a farmer who reveals his presence the Chauvelin, who is also looking for the Marquis' daughter. It is just the first of many deceptions, betrayals and stunning turns that complicate what at first seemed to be a rather straightforward rescue.
Best REG line: I get to fight nasty villains, ride magnificent horses and make love to beautiful women! (Talking about his role in the films)
