A blu-ray classic,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Adventures of Robin Hood [Blu-ray]  [US Import] (Blu-ray)
The film itself, despite all its hammy theatrics and studio scenery, needs no introduction and will stand forever as a monument to classic Hollywood swashbucking at its best. Errol Flynn oozes charm and the villains ooze villainy.
As one of the very first films ever released in colour, few of us now will ever have seen it on release in the cinema. I myself had only ever seen it on the TV screen.
The Blu-ray issue of this timeless classic from Warners is therefore a revelation. For the first time many of us can experience something close to the qualtiy of the original technicolor print. More importantly it gives the lie to any who think that Blu-ray is only really suitable for the latest blockbusters. It isn't.
Despite the passage of time, and changing tastes and fortunes, this Blu-ray release is proof that you can blow the cobwebs off a classic and see it in all the freshness and glory of the original Technicolor process as it was seen by the original audiences all those years ago.
