Product Description:

In Michael Curtiz's swashbuckling spectacle about the infamous outlaw and his band of merry men who "robbed from the rich and gave to the poor," Robin Hood (Errol Flynn) fights nobly for justice against the evil Sir Guy of Gisbourne (Basil Rathbone) while striving to win the hand of the beautiful Maid Marian (Olivia de Havilland).

Flynn joyously embraces the role widely considered the best of his bountiful array of swashbuckling legends. Delivering his lines and performing dashing acrobatics (he did most of his own stunts) with breezy élan, he darts across the intricate sets of THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD as if there are rocket boosters secreted in his tights. It was one of the earliest films to use three-color Technicolor and, at the time, the most expensive film Warner Bros. had produced. Erich Wolfgang Korngold's outstanding score won an Oscar, as did the art direction and the editing.


Production Notes:

  • THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD was added to the Library of Congress National Film Registry in 1995.
  • One of the earliest films to use three-color Technicolor and, at the time, the most expensive film Warner Bros. had produced ($2 million).
  • William Keighley started directing the film, but Curtiz finished the filming. According to Variety, Curtiz took the helm because Keighley became ill but, according to Halliwell, Curtiz became director because "it was felt that the action lacked impact."
  • The film is based on, according to the credits, "ancient Robin Hood legends."
