1905年英国女作家 Baroness Emmuska Orczy的小说《红花侠》(《 腥红色的繁笺花》)。故事描述法国大革命期间,法王路易十六被送上断头台,皇室和贵族也纷纷遭陷害。英国花花公子帕西化身为传说中的蒙面侠客红花侠,不断潜往法国, 出生入死抢救受难贵族送到国外。每次解救成功,就留下一朵红色的繁笺花为记。这个著名的冒险传奇故事曾七度搬上银幕,这个版本是电视电影,是所有根据同名小说改编中最受称赞的。

《红花侠》讲述了在法国大革命中,以援救被革命政府逮捕的贵族们为使命的英国秘密组织,其首领帕西·布莱克尼,和以革命政府全权大使身份着手破坏该组织的肖布朗之间的精彩较量,以及二人与帕西的妻子玛格丽特之间的爱恨纠缠。它是英雄主义和间谍文学的先驱,英雄借助绅士温和的假名,上演一部恐怖统治时期的《辛德勒名单》。

The Scarlet Pimpernel is a play and adventure novel by Emma Orczy set during the Reign of Terror following the start of the French Revolution. The title character, Sir Percy Blakeney, a wealthy English fop who transforms into a formidable swordsman and a quick-thinking escape artist, represents the original "hero with a secret identity" that was a precursor to subsequent literary creations such as Don Diego de la Vega (Zorro) and Bruce Wayne (Batman). Opening at the New Theatre in London's West End on 5 January 1905, the play became a favourite of British audiences, eventually playing more than 2,000 performances and becoming one of the most popular shows staged in Britain.

艾玛·奥希兹(1865年9月23日-1947年11月12日),通称奥希兹女男爵,是一位匈牙利裔英国作家、剧作家和艺术家。她最大的成就是写下了知名的系列小说《红花侠》(The Scarlet Pimpernel),她部分的画作在伦敦皇家学院里展示。奥希兹的小说是有自己特色温文尔雅的通俗剧,她也格外喜欢历史小说。

Baroness Emmuska Orczy(23 September 1865—12 November 1947) was a Hungarian-born British novelist, playwright and artist of noble origin. She is most known for her series of novels featuring the Scarlet Pimpernel. Some of her paintings were exhibited at the Royal Academy in London. Orczy's novels were racy, mannered melodramas and she favored historical fiction. Critic Mary Cadogan states, "Orczy's books are highly wrought and intensely atmospheric".

And daily, hourly, the hideous instrument of torture claimed its many victims--old men, young women, tiny children until the day when it would finally demand the head of a King and of a beautiful young Queen. But this was as it should be: were not the people now the rulers of France? Every aristocrat was a traitor, as his ancestors had been before him: for two hundred years now the people had sweated, and toiled, and starved, to keep a lustful court in lavish extravagance; now the descendants of those who had helped to make those courts brilliant had to hide for their lives--to fly, if they wished to avoid the tardy vengeance of the people.
