The Adventures of Robin Hood
Our next Rialto Recommends is Errol Flynn's 1938 classic THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD. Starring Flynn, Olivia de Haviland, Basil Rathbone, and Claude Rains this is Warner Brother's retelling of the classic tale. Errol Flynn thrills as the legendary title character, and the film embodies the type of imaginative family adventure tailor-made for the silver screen. Variety raved "It is cinematic pageantry at its best, a highly imaginative telling of folklore in all the hues of Technicolor." Reviewing the film in 2003 Roger Ebert proclaimed "In these cynical days when swashbucklers cannot be presented without an ironic subtext, this great 1938 film exists in an eternal summer of bravery and romance." THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD is streaming on HBOMax and The Film Detective or is available to rent for a modest fee from Amazon, GooglePlay, YouTube, Vudu and others. Enjoy this classic with your family or grandkids.
