Just for the sake of the argument (not that there is any kind of argument going on, but for the sake of the argument let's say there IS an argument, okay), I thought it would be good to do a little comparison of the two most well-known portrayals of the famed Sir Percy Blakeney. There are those of us who believe that Anthony Andrews completely, totally and unquestionably OWNS the role of the Scarlet Pimpernel. Then there are those who think that Leslie Howard did a better job, but they aren't reading this post. (At least I hope they're not... and if they are, I hope they change their minds. The end.) Anyway, in case you needed proof that Anthony Andrews is The Better Man, I present for you two versions of the Iconic Poem.
Heh. Heh. That was kind of cute. (Laugh, please, so his feelings won't be hurt.)
And now for the piece de resistance, the video you scrolled down to see (because honestly, now, how many of you--besides me--actually watched the above video?)--the Real Thing.
Well, don't deafen the poor man (or me, because I'm listening) with your applause, ladies. Really, now. OUCH.
