The Adventures of Robin Hood

I saw this at Prospect Park a few years ago and fell in love with it. The swashbucklingness of it all dazzled me. Errol Flynn is such a prettyboy badass, you know. And there's the Cowardly Lion. And there's the foxy Olivia de Havilland. And there's also this guy who played Friar Tuck. And there's the skeevy Prince John. And there's great sword fight after great sword fight. What a movie this is!

I showed it to my class. They dug it but some of the Saxons vs. the Normans stuff and the complicated language confused them a bit. But they dug the sword fights.

Directed by Michael Curtiz and William Keighley
1938
DVD
