Description by OLDIES.com:
Let danger befall him. Let the winds of fate blow where they may. Andre Moreau will strike a blow for vengeance and the French Revolution. First, he must hone his skill with the blade. By day, Andre secretly perfects his parries and lunges...and hides his true identity at night behind the mask of stage clown Scaramouche.
Stylish adaptation of the Rafael Sabatini's 1921 novel set in 18th-century France in which a man seeks to avenge the death of his brother. Acting in public like a bumbling baffoon, he is really a leader of the French Revolution.
An 18th Century French aristocrat seeks revenge against the ace swashbuckler who killed his friend. To prepare for the impending duel, the nobleman takes fencing lessons from an acting group, and even takes on the role of "Scaramouche". The exciting climax of the film -- the clash between the two swordsmen -- lasts over six minutes!
