Sir Percy Blakeney is leading a double life.  To most people, he is a vain snob dressed in baby blue.  However, to 19 other co-conspirators against the French Reign of Terror, he is the "Scarlet Pimpernel", a man of 100 faces who seems nowhere and everywhere at the same time.  Citizen Chauvelin (played by Ian McKellen who is also Ahab in Moby Dick) has been sent from Paris to force Sir Percy's wife, Marguerite St. Just, to help him discover who the Scarlet Pimpernel is in return for her brother's life.  Finding she's been outwitted by Chauvelin, her only recourse is to turn to her half-witted husband for help, and he immediately sets out on a trip to Paris.  Realizing too late that her own husband is the Scarlet Pimpernel, she rushes to Paris to warn Sir Percy to beware of Chauvelin.  He manages to rescue her brother and his family and evade Chauvelin. According to Wikipedia, this is probably the first "hero in disguise" story like Zorro and Batman.  (See Number 20 below.)
