Robin Hood

Archery, and when knights were bold while villains were cold, and that is Robin Hood. Robin Hood is a great production but not a great picture. It just misses being great through a slow long opening. In the days of Richard the Lionheart and his First Crusade.

Archery, and when knights were bold while villains were cold, and that is Robin Hood.

Robin Hood is a great production but not a great picture. It just misses being great through a slow long opening. In the days of Richard the Lionheart and his First Crusade.

The prettiness of the sets of Robin Hood’s lair in Sherwood Forest, the picturesqueness of his band of outlaws who were for their King and against his villainous brother, Prince John; the breadth of the settings throughout; the stunts by Douglas Fairbanks when he gets going; the superb supporting cast, the castle – that’s Robin Hood and why it is a good picture. It holds you tense in the Robin Hood portion and lets you down badly when it’s about Richard.
