Description

Arguably Flynn's greatest role, this is the swashbuckling spectacle about the infamous outlaw and his band of merry men who "robbed from the rich and gave to the poor." Robin Hood fights for justice against the evil Sir Guy of Gisbourne, while striving to win the hand of the beautiful Maid Marian. A rollicking adventure never outdone by remakes, this epic features great sword play, music, characters and storybook. Shot in glorious Technicolor.
