The Adventures of Robin Hood

One of the few great adventure movies that you can pretend you are treating the kids to when you are really treating yourself: the kind of Hollywood film to which Star Wars pays tribute, and one of the best examples of what large studio resources could produce. Glorious colour, sumptuous sets, and a brilliantly choreographed climactic sword fight between Flynn and Rathbone; the stuff of which Saturday matinee dreams were made.

The 1938 version of the Robin Hood story is full of excitement, great characters, an amazing Wolfgang Korngold score, brilliant colour, amazing sets and a tight plot. It is simply the greatest adventure film ever filmed.

My father was a great friend of Patric Knoles before he went to Hollywood in 1936.However, this film was one of his best together with Auntie Mame. This version of Robin Hood stands up very well to the present day versions. Well worth buying this DVD as it is a classic !
