Scaramouche (1952, Stewart Granger, Eleanor Parker)



George Sidney’s swashbuckling adventure stars Stewart Granger as Andre Moreau, a young man determined to avenge the death of his friend at the hand of the Marquis de Maynes (Mel Ferrer). The Marquis is the finest swordsman in France however, and, to gain enough time to learn to fight well enough to take him on, Moreau lays low as the clown Scaramouche. Moreau’s journey to face his destiny inevitably features generous helpings of swordfighting action, numerous cases of mistaken identity and romantic liaisons with Eleanor Parker and Janet Leigh.
