Scaramouche

A near-classic swashbuckler, adapted from the Rafael Sabatini novel set in 18th century France, with Granger desperate to avenge his dead friend by killing Mel Ferrer. But since he's not quite deadly enough with the rapier, he has to get some tuition. While all this revenge stuff simmers away, he falls in love with Miss Leigh, who may be his sister; and so, drawing the line at incest, he goes moodily back to sharpening his blade, while the plot unravels everyone's ancestry. Granger shows he can swash a buckle with the best of them, but whereas Fairbanks and Flynn did it with a grin, Granger wields the dirk with a smirk.

This is by far the best swashbuckler I've ever seen and Ive been watching them for 50 years God help me. Just wish it was on DVD. Why is it not ?

Comedic showcase of Granger and company. Good story in the long run. Lots of action.
