The definitive, quintessential swashbuckler!

Maid Marian: "Why, you speak treason!"
Robin Hood: "Fluently."

Even after numerous decades and incalculable subsequent retellings of the Robin Hood legend, Warner Bros.' 1938 production of The Adventures of Robin Hood is still the definitive filmic retelling of the swashbuckling hero. Whether or not you're accustomed to this wonderful 1938 production, you'll discover everythi... read more

''Now some of you might think that our loyal host intended this treasure for the coffers of Prince John, instead of to ransom the king- and you'd be right. But a strange thing happened. A change of heart overtook him in the forest and there it is safe and sound!''

Perfectly Perfected Perfection

I’ve long considered reviewing this movie before but it’s hard to do it justice. For my money, The Adventures of Robin Hood is just too dam perfect a film, every element fits together to an nth degree; I could put this movie under the microscope and not find a single thing I dislike about it. Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilliand, Basil Rathbone and Claude Raines as the villains, the Technicolor, ... read more

Based on the well-known English legend, Robin of Locksley is a noble who is forced to become an outlaw when Prince John the usurper tries to take the throne from his absent brother. He flees to Sherwood forest where he gathers together his Merry Men and is called Robin Hood. He begins to rob the rich and give back to the poor, the townsfolk that are heavily-taxed by the Sheriff of Nottingham. Meanwhile he still has to defend the throne, and woo Maid Marian.

"I have always loved the story of Robin Hood since I was a child. However, few filmic attempts to capture the essence of what struck a chord with me about this legend have been particularly successful. While I loved the Disney animated version as a child (and still do, incidentally), live action efforts like 'Robin and Marian' or 'Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves' left much to be desired. My favourite Robin Hood related offerings were invariably parodies like Tony Robinson's brilliant children's TV "

Movie Reviews (301-350) (50 movies items)

" Playful Robin Hood movie with a very likeable Errol Flynn and an excellent villainous Basil Rathbone. I love the sword fights, the fast pace and the hilarious fun sequence where a evil soldier laughs manically only to get shot in the chest by Robin Hood seconds later. The film also has thousands of scenes stolen in countless Hood adaptations later. Great Technicolor footage add to the classic appeal of it all. They don't make 'em like this anymore. "

"15.12. Ultimaattista seikkailua poikain oli kiva käydä katsomassa teatterissa. Flynn virnuilee, kalsarit pullottavat, ja meininki on vähän liiankin hilpeää. Sisäinen pikkupoika nousee esiin ja kaipaa krapulaa, mikä on kaiketi joidenkin mielestä väärin..."

My All-Time Favorite Films Ranked (10.0/10.0) (46 movies items)

"A good old fashioned adventure film done to absolute best potential, and the best version of the Robin Hood story. This film was a reminder of one of things that film can be used to do very well; tell a good story, but also let the audience relax and have a good time, in a way that isn't possible in any other medium. It may be filled with a childlike innocence that would be impossible to make today, that's one of the things that makes it so charming, and ensures that it will be remembered foreve"
