I must begin by saying that for me, Errol Flynn holds the crown as the all time great definative Robin Hood, which as a major Hollywood film release went under the same name as this T.V. series.
That being said, my first 'Robin Hood' was Richard Green in this Brit. T.V. series which I saw run in New York City, U.S.A. when it was currently being turned out, and 'on the air-waves.'
