We recently watched this again---top notch performance by all and especially the late Christopher Plummer. Gregory Peck is also quite stellar, the supporting cast is wonderful, and the music is by Ennio Morricone.
For those who don't know: The Scarlet and the Black is a 1983 American made-for-television historical war drama film directed by Jerry London. Based on J. P. Gallagher's book The Scarlet Pimpernel of the Vatican (published in 1967), the film tells the story of Monsignor Hugh O'Flaherty, a real-life Irish Catholic priest who saved thousands of Jews and escaped Allied POWs in Rome., CBS distributed more than 500,000 scripts of The Scarlet and the Black to students in elementary and high schools throughout the country, to be read aloud in class to stimulate student interest in English and history.
