The Adventures of Robin Hood

Fun in the forest.

Here we are, 82 years down the road, and this remains one of the most purely entertaining films captured on celluloid.

Errol Flynn, rogue in real life and on the silver screen, was born to play the man who faced danger with a laugh and a bounce in his step, while the supporting cast is first-rate.

Two-time Oscar winner Olivia de Havilland, Basil Rathbone, and Claude Rains are the marquee names, but scan the supporting crew and there are recognizable faces everywhere.

The Robin Hood tale has been told many times, but this remains the gold standard.
