Audience Reviews for Scaramouche

  • Jun 24, 2016
    "Scaramouche" may be overly melodramatic and have a storyline more prone in a soap opera whose ratings have slumped, but that doesn't make this a bad film. On the contrary, this film includes some of the greatest choreographed sword fights ever caught on film, including the finale that lasts more than five minutes. If there is anything in the film that I could do without, it's the love story aspect of the film and the constant nagging of Eleanor Parker's character that since Andre (Stewart Granger) has his head elsewhere and she doesn't know he's practicing to become a better swordsmen that he must be in love with another woman. Maybe fifteen minutes of the film is her accusing him of loving Janet Leigh's character when she turns out to be his half-sister. The technicolor is fantastic and the sets and costumes are amazing. I just am not too sure if the gowns worn by the women were time appropriate?

    Delightful adaptation of Sabatini's comic-swashbuckler. Memorable, epic six-and-a-half minute climactic swordfight in a deserted theater between the well-cast Stewart Granger and Mel Ferrer.

    'he was born with a gift of laughter and a sense that the world was mad.' one of the best costume epics of the 50s (tbh i hate most of those films.) stewart granger masquerades as an actor until the day he can take revenge for the death of his friend in the early days of the french revolution. famously contains the longest swordfight ever filmed. mel ferrer makes a great haughty villain and janet leigh and eleanor parker look fetching in period garb. from a novel by rafael sabatini, author of some of my pirate faves: the sea hawk, captain blood and the black swan
