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 Havilland, Basil Rathbone and Claude Raines as the villains, the Technicolor, t... read more
View all The Adventures of Robin Hood reviews
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.

A classic

“I have to admit that I wasn’t really eager to watch yet another version of this timeless tale but since this movie is considered as the best version ever made, I had to watch it at some point. To be honest, I was at first actually worried during the first scenes. Indeed, the whole thing looked way too cheesy for me, especially Errol Flynn with his tights, pointy hat and haircut which all looked quite ridiculous. However, from the moment Robin Hood went to Nottingham Castle on his own with just a bow and some arrows to provoke his enemies right on the spot, I was actually sold. Indeed, not only the action scene that followed was quite thrilling, but the boldness and recklessness of the character was just neat. Eventually, while watching this movie, it became pretty obvious that the main i” read more

"“‘Welcome to Sherwood Forest!’ – it’s one of those fantastic, iconic moments in film. I love the scene where Robin Hood comes into the castle all alone. He has a bow and some arrows. He’s asked to dinner, there are at least a hundred people there; they’re going to trap him…and make it out.” - Carrie Fisher “This has to be one of my favorite movies of all time. It never gets tiresome. It’s the definitive romantic adventures with a swashbuckling hero and beautiful maiden, i"
