"Classic" Restored

on 9/27/2013

There are a small number of movies in the history of Hollywood that can actually be considered perfect. "The Adventures of Robin Hood" with the incomparable Errol Flynn is one of them. With over a hundred reviews already, there is little for anyone to add. I will, however, provide a brief summary as to why this movie is indeed perfect, a term I use very rarely.

Editors Note
Note 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.
Los Angeles Times "...A treat for the eye and ear....An action-packed romantic take on the old legend..." 10/06/2003 p.C12
USA Today "...Visually, screen reds were never redder nor greens greener, and this was the screen adventure for the era..." 10/03/2003 p.6E
Total Film "[T]he dialogue is delectable Hollywood fustian at is best; the period Technicolor glows like a jewel..." 02/01/2004 p.114-5
Premiere "[O]ut of all the embodiments of derring-do played by Flynn, his nobelman-turned-defender-of-the-poor-and-oppressed is the most purely joyous." 04/01/2004 p.70
Sight and Sound "[A] Technicolor swashbuckler." 04/01/2004 p.74
