"Ceased? I will love her to the day I die. That is the tragedy." Sir Percy

One of my favorite romance movies of all time is The Scarlet Pimpernel (1982) starring Jane Seymour and Anthony Andrews. Enjoy this video I found on youtube.






And one more quote to entice you...
Sir Percy: The only power that I can see at present, mademoiselle, is the power of your beauty.
Marguerite: Well, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, Sir Percy.
Sir Percy: This beholder is enchanted
Liz: sighhhhhhh

How YOUNG they both look. Especially the Kay Jewelers lady! Both were pretty gorgeous back inthe day, no?
The song remind me of "Holding Out for a Hero" by Bonnie Tyler (much better) and that reminded me of Bo breaking in on Hope's wedding and whisking her away by motorcycle, but when I went to look for YouTubes, turned out that Bo was much less cute than I remembered, the cast of Days of Our Lives were really pretty bad actors, soap operas are really DRAWN OUT, somethings things from the '80s should just STAY in th '80s and and. . . well, just never mind.
PS: You're spelling my name wrong!

The is one of my favorites, as well. I found a black-and-white DVD several years ago and it never fails to move me. Men just don't woo women anymore.

Sandra - so true

How is that I've never seen this movie? I love historical fiction. It's going in the Netflix queue today.

Hugs,
