Errol Flynn is perfect as Robin Hood. He has the swagger, the quickness, the keen mind, and the daring ability to get of even the worst situations. I loved his humor that he added to Robin Hood. He has the good looks to be the dream of all the women in the movie and the audience I am sure. Go back to yesteryear and see one of the greatest stars of the screen in one of his best movies!

A TRUE representation of Robin Hood, I was THOROUGHLY impressed and surprised by this film! How refreshing to see real action for once without all the camera trickery. A must see!!!

The score for this film ranks #11 on the American Film Institute's list of top film scores. It's worth checking out if you like the music of Erich Korngold.

Its fun to be a Legendary hero/outlaw Robin Hood steals from the rich and gives to the poor and romances the beautiful Maid Marian_____A+ DVD for a motion picture from 1938.

Very, very dated. I've seen school plays performed and directed better than this, even though this has hilarious costumes AND Errol Flynn.

Borrow it if you're home sick, or doing something else at the same time.
