Old-Fashioned Fun and a great introduction to classic movies

One of the best classic movies to introduce kids to old movies. Equally enjoyable for boys and girls. Teaches kids about tyranny, justice, fair play, sharing with others when you have more and they have less. There is some violence (e.g., fighting with bows and arrows, swords, an attempted hanging) and a little blood, so it's important to watch these scenes with your kids and explain how real violence hurts. But mostly, it's good clean old-fashioned fun, exhilarating and charming. Though the bad prince is a bit effeminate, I wouldn't necessarily characterize this as outright homophobia, as the reviewer on this site does. Also pair this movie with Disney's animated ROBIN HOOD and invite the kids to compare.

It's Just Campy Fun Now

The Adventures of Robin Hood was made in 1938, and I fell in love with this movie the first time I saw it, I wished I had seen it as a child as I can just imagine how much of a fun journey that would have been. It's a fantastic film and if you like any other Robin Hood movies, you have to watch this, at least once. You won't regret it.

One of my most favorite versions of Robin Hood! Errol Flynn does an awesome job playing Robin! Sure to be a hit and a family favorite :)

Robin needs to go to Red Robin

You know, this movie wasn't that engaging. Robin's little goatee was disrespectful to those who can really rock a beard, he couldn't. I mean it also brainwashes you kids to go follow their dreams, and I don't have any kids until 1997 but honestly the overall theme of the movie is disgusting. Great movie.

Really first rate

I can not recommend this movie highly enough. This is for any family that believes people are called to care for their neighbors and reject greed but that living a life of principle is best done with a twinkle in the eye and the ability to sword fight. The sword fighting is masterful and Maid Marion (the lovely Olivia de Havilland) is both beautiful and brave.
