Robin Hood was never so colourful as in this 1938 swashbuckling adventure! Errol Flynn plays the lead role in this simple story about Robin Hood and his very merry men. While Flynn and de Havilland would normally steal the spotlight in most movies they were to star in, the strong supporting cast provided one of the most entertaining and great looking tales of Robin Hood to be filmed. The dynamic camera movements, great editing, beautiful and brilliantly coloured wardrobe and detailed sets are visual very appealing, as is the original musical score which perfectly suits this action adventure classic (Klaus Ming February 2009).
