He robbed from the rich and gave to the poor, and had escapades enough to please any adventure-loving child. Now even the youngest readers can have the chance to enter Sherwood Forest with Robin's band of merry men, and meet such unforgettable characters as Friar Tuck, Little John, Allan-a-Dale, the nasty Sheriff of Nottingham, and wicked King John. Every moment of the story is filled with action and excitement.
I'm surprised by how charming Errol Flynn is after all of these years, although he is annoyingly cocky. In terms of a boner scale, I'd rank him as my second favorite Robin Hood.

These costumes are so historically inaccurate (velvet!,) it's more fun to watch this as if this is some other planet and this is their version of medieval times.
Charismatic Errol Flynn and colourful compositions are solide guarantees. 100 minutes of adventures, sword fights and plain villains gives you a fun and entertaining Hollywood milestone. But i'll always prefer to this a more poetic film like Rohmer's "Perceval le gallois".
