World War II brought Leslie Howard the opportunity to bring up to
modern times one of his most beloved parts, that of The Scarlet
Pimpernel. This time he's Horatio 'Pimpernel' Smith, archaeologists by
day and rescuer of some of the finest intellectual minds in Germany who
are marked for death by Adolph Hitler.
In The Scarlet Pimpernel Howard is a Georgian fop as his cover for the
dashing, unknown, and elusive pimpernel. Substitute fop for tweedy as
he's now an Oxford archeology professor and his cover is a beaut.
One of the Nazi Aryan racial vanities was that way back in the day
there was an Aryan civilization. Being the archaeologist he is,
Howard's cover is that he's in Germany on a dig, looking for evidence
of that selfsame civilization. He even brings along several students as
part of the cover.
In one scene Howard is wounded when he's disguised as a scarecrow and a
Nazi guard shoots at it to make a point. That does lead to him being
found out by his students, one of them being David Tomlinson, later the
father in Mary Poppins. To a man, they all decide to stay and help him
with his work.
Howard's a bachelor here so he doesn't have wife Merle Oberon and her
family dirty laundry to compromise him as he did in The Scarlet
Pimpernel. Here he's dealing with Mary Morris who is collaborating with
the Nazis to keep her musician father, Peter Gawthorne alive.
Taking the place of Howard's relentless foe Chauvelin as played by
Raymond Massey is Francis L. Sullivan as General Von Graum of the
Gestapo. Sullivan is a favorite character actor of mine and a joy to
watch in any film he does whether a good guy or the baddest of bad guys
as he is here.
Leslie Howard directed this film himself and it's interesting to
speculate had he survived World War II whether he would have done more
work behind rather than in front of the camera. In directing Pimpernel
Smith, he certainly had the advantage of knowing his character well.
And you shouldn't pass up an opportunity to get to know him too.
