Perhaps the screen's all-time grandest adventure film, THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD is as heart- stoppingly rousing as the day it opened in 1938. Has any other adventure film boasted a hero more dashing and charismatic than Errol Flynn? A heroine more lovely than Olivia de Havilland? Villains more hissable than Claude Rains and Basil Rathbone? Ah, just the thought of this film makes me want to go out and fight a duel with a deer carcass slung over my shoulders. I also love the way it screams "TECHNICOLOR!!!!!" in every frame, and gets away with it. - JLAction/Adventure The Stuff You Gotta Watch Home Page
