A robbing you will never forget from the Hood...

''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!''


When Prince John and the Norman Lords begin oppressing the Saxon masses in King Richard's absence, a Saxon lord fights back as the outlaw leader of a rebel guerrilla army.

Errol Flynn: Robin Hood

Olivia de Havilland: Maid Marian

Another classic that I've watched so many times when i was little and growing up. Robin Hood played by Errol Flynn is a wonder to behold everytime you watch it.
He's got charisma, a flair for the dramatic and a real penchant for keeping you watching. He gives the whole film a huge boost.

Granted it's dated yes, but timeless yes also. It's of a bygone era when films had a quality lacking in today's cinema.

Going back to Errol Flynn, this guy was a legend in his time and he's amazing in this.
Olivia de Havilland also dazzles as Maid Marion and the Sheriff of Nottingham played by Melville Cooper is somewhere in between camp and jovial villainy.
Eugene Palette as the plump Friar Tuck is also a huge part of comic relief as is Little John played by Alan Hale. They really fit their roles perfectly.

The music well suited to the late 1930s, Warner Brothers going all out with this big budget retelling of the Legendary Robin Hood.
The last sword fight truly needs to be marveled at. Choreography wise it's aged well and still entertaining to watch.

An old favourite classic. Kevin Costner should have watched this!

9/10
