Product Description

Triple bill of swashbuckling adventures from the 1940s, '50s and '60s based on the legend of Robin Hood. In 'Sword of Sherwood Forest' (1960), Robin Hood (Richard Greene) and his band of merry men encounter a man who has been wounded by the wicked Sheriff of Nottingham (Peter Cushing). Before he dies, the man warns them of 'danger at Bawtry'. Riding to Bawtry, Robin and his men discover that the Sheriff and the Earl of Newark are attempting to seize the castle, and the group join the Chancellor in repelling the attack. In 'The Bandit of Sherwood Forest' (1946), Robin Hood's son, Robert of Nottingham (Cornel Wilde), returns to Sherwood Forest. With the aid of his father's merry men, he saves England's young king and the Magna Carta from the evils of the wayward Regent (Henry Daniell) and wins the hand of a beautiful maiden. In 'Rogues of Sherwood Forest' (1950), the corrupt and cruel King John (George Macready) is back on the throne of England. With his loyal band of followers Will Scarlet (Billy Bevan), Friar Tuck (Billy House) and Alan A-Dale (Lester Matthews), young Robin (John Derek) must once more battle the King's men and win the heart of the fair Lady Marianne (Diana Lynn).

This 3 DVD set gives us a trilogy of tales inspired by the legend of Robin Hood....

The Bandit Of Sherwood Forest (1946) is the oldest film in this collection and stars Cornel Wilde as Robert of Nottingham, the son of Robin Hood, who teams up with his dad (played by Russell Hicks) and the Merry Men in order to prevent the evil William of Pembroke (Henry Daniell) from killing the young king, abolishing the Magna Carta and inflicting his own tyrannical rule on England's green and pleasant land. This is a lively action-adventure movie featuring the usual brave heroes, dastardly villains and beautiful damsels in distress.

Rogues Of Sherwood Forest (1950), although made four years after Bandit, actually serves as a sort of prequel to the 1946 film and stars John Derek (Bo's beau with a bow!!!) as Robin, Earl of Huntington, the son of Robin Hood, who reforms his father's band of Merry Men when the greedy King John imposes heavy taxes on the people of England. It is also worth noting that this film also features Alan Hale as Little John (in sadly his last film role) and Alan had previously played this character in the films Robin Hood (1922) and The Adventures Of Robin Hood (1938).

Sword Of Sherwood Forest (1960) stars Richard Greene, who played Robin Hood for many years on television, reprising his most famous role on the big screen in this entertaining Hammer film directed by the great Terence Fisher and also featuring Hammer movie regulars Peter Cushing (as The Sheriff of Nottingham), Richard Pasco and Oliver Reed. Hammer actually made three Robin Hood films in total, the other two being Men Of Sherwood Forest and A Challenge For Robin Hood, but I would say that Sword is my favourite Hammer Robin Hood film and one of my all-time favourite Robin Hood movies.

Those three old films featuring robin hood or someone very related to him are very entertaining. Good casts (excellent John Derek, Cornel Wilde or Richard Greene), excellent directors who kew how to really make a film without special effects nor big budgets and interesting and varied scripts. Of course it's a little bit old fashioned but much more entertaining than the Ridley Scott's pachydermic vision of Robin. Good transfers and english subtitles which is very useful.

Columbia's three disc set brings three of their very sub-Errol Flynn outing's to Sherwood together (though a fourth, Prince of Thieves, was only released Stateside) in a boxed set where quantity outweighs quality.

"What's a pretty girl like you doing all alone in Sherwood Forest?"

Although 1950's lacklustre Rogues of Sherwood Forest saw John Derek take on his fictional father's mantle to dispiritingly little effect, Columbia had done the whole son of Robin Hood thing four years earlier and much better in 1946's The Bandit of Sherwood Forest, with a slightly sleazy and wildly over-confident Cornel Wilde as Robert Hood (well, Robert of Huntingdon). He's called into the fray when his father (Russell Hicks) and the Merry Men, who are beginning to feel their age, renew the fight against tyranny after King John's death when Henry Daniell's evil Regent overthrows the Magna Carta and plans to kill the child king and steal his throne.

There's not much that's unexpected and despite the truly glorious Technicolor (courtesy of Tony Gaudio, who shot Errol Flynn's Adventures of Robin Hood with Sol Polito a decade earlier) and two directors (Henry Levin and George Sherman) it's hardly an A-list production, but it does it enjoyably enough en route to its final duel between Wilde and Daniell, who, caddish to the last, tries to starve the outlaw for three days before their Trial by Combat to give himself an edge. Neither Wilde nor his very 40s leading lady Anita Louise exactly dominate the screen (dialogue like "What's a pretty girl like you doing all alone in Sherwood Forest?

This box set represents a good bargain. Separately cased, with good blurbs, the films are all very good quality (colour and sound), and don't appear on Tv much if at all. I saw all 3 in the cinema (tho the U.S. films were re-releases (remember them, usually Sunday afternoons at the local Kingston Granada?), and I come to my point about thinking first before buying (even at this ridiculous low price). Will you really enjoy these very old fashioned juvenile films now? I sort of did, and certainly prefer them to The Costner and the "other" one, title of which I cannot call to mind. I can't quite give 5 stars, but an unqualified 4, just be prepared to be a tiny tiny bit disapointed (maybe). Long live Flynn!
