Description by OLDIES.com:
The legend of Robin Hood is given a grand retelling in this popular and long running series made for television (1955-58). Filmed in Great Britain with the handsome and dashing British actor Richard Greene as Robin, the "outlaws" of Sherwood Forest watch over the people of England and protect them from the cruelty and greed of the ruling aristocrats.
A Year And A Day: Surgeon Calend, beloved healer of the poor and needy, reveals to Robin that he is actually a runaway serf - and wanted by the Sheriff of Nottingham.
Isabella: Prince John is determined to marry the beautiful Isabella, a French Princess. Faced with divorce, John's wife secretly appeals to Robin for help.
The Healing Hand: Little John is jailed after assaulting a squad of the sheriff's guards. Robin and his merry men must stage a daring jail-break.
The Salt King: An unscrupulous salt merchant schemes to inflate the value of his product by creating an artificial shortage of the precious commodity - until Robin decides to enter the salt business himself.
While trying to outwit Prince John and the Sheriff of Nottingham, Robin Hood and his merry men rob from the rich to give to the poor in this 1950s British television series. Richard Greene played Robin as an upbeat and expansive fellow, with a small repertory troupe playing different supporting roles. This collection presents four episodes from the show: "A Year And A Day," "Isabella," "The Healing Hand," and "The Salt King."
