Swashbuckling romance, adapted from Barbara Cartland's novel 'Cupid Rides Pillion' set in 17th century England. Lady Panthea Vyne (Lysette Anthony) gets married to the evil and brutish Drysdale (Ian Bannen), only to be rescued from his cruelty that very same day by a dashing and mysterious highwayman, the 'Silver Blade' (Hugh Grant). Later, as a visitor to the Royal Court, Panthea attracts the attention of King Charles II (Michael York), and becomes embroiled in a scandal that will lead to her death - that is, unless the Silver Blade can come to her aid once again.
