Best of British Films - 3

”Pimpernel” Smith (1941)

In a twist of the old “Scarlet Pimpernel” theme, this film is set in World War II where a British gent, unassuming Professor of Archeology, is smuggling enemies of the Nazi state out of Germany. This get complicated when one of the women he helps escape isn’t everything she appears to be… A sensitive, intelligent film that makes the best of its setting.
