One of the best from Disney
on 29 April 2011
As a collector of books and films relating to Robin Hood I have got to say that this is absolutely one of my favourites. I first viewed this classic Disney film at the cinema as a child when it was first released in the UK and for me this film still holds the same charm after nearly sixty years. Richard Todd is up there in the top three Robin Hood players with Errol Flynn and Richard Greene, and the incomparable Peter Finch is suavely evil as the Sheriff of Nottingham and the all British supporting cast make for the right level of drama and humour in what is essentially a telling of the Robin Hood story suitable for the whole family.
I had been trying to upgrade my old VHS copy for some years but this excellent little film was not released on DVD until 2009 and then only as a region 1 NTSC version, if you have a multi-region player then the DVD is far superior quality to the original UK release VHS.
