The Adventures of Robin Hood
DIRECTOR: MICHAEL CURTIZ AND WILLIAM KEIGHLEY
CAST: ERROL FLYNN, OLIVIA DE HAVILLAND, BASIL RATHBONE, CLAUDE RAINS
See Sherwood Forest in sumptuous Technicolor green in this definitive live-action telling of the Robin Hood story, with dashing, swashbuckling Errol Flynn setting the standard for all Sir Robin of Locksleys to come while paying court to Olivia de Havilland. With King Richard away, brother John (Claude Rains) plays dirty, enlisting the cruel talents of Basil Rathbone’s grave Sir Guy of Gisbourne against the Merry Men, resulting in much clashing of blades and high heroics.
The Adventures of Robin Hood is screening as part of the Playtime: Family Matinee series.
