Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Mam'zelle Guillotine

It is around 1793 in France, and the Reign of Terror is in full swing. In a small town, a woman has taken over running the guillotine, wishing for revenge, and it never stops. They call her Mam'zelle Guillotine, and the Scarlet Pimpernel and his band of merry men are in town. Mam'zelle doesn't realize that her new love interest, a soldier, is actually a prominent English spy. Those Frenchies just can't close their fingers- and sharpen their blades- on the neck of the elusive Pimpernel.
