Scaramouche (1952, George Sidney)

By Andrew Wickliffe on Mar 24, 2014 From The Stop Button

Scaramouche is a deliberately constructed film. I’m curious if screenwriters Ronald Millar and George Froeschel followed the source novel’s plot structure, because it’s a very peculiar series of events. It doesn’t open with the leading man, instead starting out with villain M... Read full article


Fun Size Review: Scaramouche (1923)

By Fritzi Kramer on Jan 7, 2014 From Movies Silently

Facts about

The horseback chase scenes were filmed in San Francisco's famed Golden Gate Park. At first, we see the characters spotting each other at Lloyd Lake near the "Portal of the Past", then the "Rainbow Falls" on John F. Kennedy Drive, up the steps in front of the Band Concourse and towards the Japanese Tea Garden. All scenes beautifully photographed in Technicolor in semi-fog. The duel scene was shot at Lindley Meadows, near the Polo Field just south of Stow Lake. This is the same area used in Star Trek IV as the landing place for the Enterprise crew in the captured and cloaked "Bird of Prey" ship.
In the original novel by Rafael Sabatini, the climactic duel occurred outdoors. The shooting script had planned for the duel to occur in a garden, until someone had the idea of moving it to the theater. In the climactic theatre scene, a shot where Andre Moreau swings on a rope to arrive on stage was cut. Still in, however, is the later shot where he uses the rope to swing up to the balcony.
Originally both Elizabeth Taylor and Ava Gardner were supposed to be in this film, but had to decline due to other commitments.
