PLOT: classic Pimpernel with Big time Movie STARS~

Leslie Howard is Sir Percy aka the Scarlet Pimpernel who played him the movie. Olivia DeHavilland is Margarite complete with French accent. This is a well done Radio play from the golden age of Radio. Sir Percy in disguise rescues aristocrats from Reign of Terror in France. Very good for a fast one hour show and included are the EVER fun LUX flakes
commercials~~ that keep your stockings from "runs"....5 STAR all the way.
