Every once in a while, a film might have 3 or 4 of the 5 essentials (excellent cast, director, music, script and those needed intangibles) that make it not only enjoyable but some-thing that says, "I want to see that again". To have all 5 of 5 usually means in today's world that the movie is nominated for 8~12 Oscars and wins most. But for older films of 70 or more years ago, it's usually the one that not only do reviewers, critics, hosts of oldie movie channels (i.e. Bob & Ben) wax poetic about but one that viewers say, "Show it again"! And one more time, please. This is one of those movies. It has the rare combination of an absolutely sparkling musical score, significantly great cinematography, a wonderfully tight script that complimented the action and not vice versa, deft direction, the timely luck of being filmed in color and that cast. That cast was magnificent & became an essential in just about any meaningful Warner Bros-Errol Flynn action/adventure. And Errol Flynn is there in his absolute best film role whatsoever. Bar none. It's non-stop entertainment at, for its time, the top of the mountain. One downside. Way back 25-30 years ago, there were still some scenes included from the original film release that were being shown on TV and have bern cut. One such scene was towards the end when Richard and Robin went to the castle of the Church of the Black Whomever (ok, I forget his film title) who was to lead the investiture of Prince John and made him an offer he couldn't refuse. It, along with the others, need to be reinserted as we don't worry about the video needing to fit into a window of a certain number of minutes.

This movie has everything: nostalgia, romance, appropriate wonderful music, beautiful scenery and cinematography, great collection of actors, and most especially the presence of Errol Flynn, who did an absolutely superb job! This movie remains an absolute gem after all these years.

I have to admit, the Errol Flynn Robin Hood is pure spectacle! Arguably the Most Splendid Robin Hood film in history! Errol Flynn is absolutely awesome as Robin Hood! His charm and wit is marvelous! The sweeping technicolor cinematography, Erich Wolfgang Korngold's outstanding score, the fantastic artwork and the incisive acting by Olivia De Havilland, Claude rains, Basil Rathbone, Alan hale, Eugene paullete and much more are all first rate, and pure spectacle! See it!

Were watching this movie in history class and it's freakin cool. Ill give it 20 stars if i could.

I just watched this movie a little while ago and I cannot believe it is 71 years old! It has stood the test of time! Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland were (and will remain) one of Hollywood's best on-screen romantic pairs. Olivia de Havilland is 93 years old and still looks fantastic. I will definitely be showing this movie to my kids and grandkids.

I love old movies, and this is terrific! THere wil never be a better version of Robin Hood produced! If you even are slightly interested, get it! You will love it!

Mr. Flynn was one of a kind, like the characters he played or shined through.

The equal of Star Wars. The light saber duals were based on this movie. The sword fighting doesn't get any better.

Fun, romantic, great acting and one of the best movies ever! If you are a fan of the classics don't miss this one! The story will sweep you up and the music is phenomenally beautiful!

I believe I have seen every Robin Hood ever made and it is my humble opinion that this is the best one. Errol Flynn is completely superb as is Olivia de Havilland. I would definitely suggest that people buy this movie.

This movie is the best Robin Hood you'll ever see. The surprising thing is that it is very funny and it is well balanced. Errol Flynn is absolutely awesome, Olivia de Haviland is stunning, and Basil Rathbone is simply one of the best villains you'll ever see. Even though the movie is 70 years old, it still looks awesome thanks to today's restoration technologies.

This movie is not only great, it also has a lot of memories attached to it. Anyone who hasn't seen this cannot say that they are a movie fanatic! It's a movie that just cannot be duplicated in this day in age. I love it so much!

This version of Robin Hood, though slightly campy, is one of the most heartwarming versions to watch. Errol Flynn is as dashing as ever, and Olivia de Havilland is absolutely beautiful. It also has the added bonus of being the movie that the Disney classic is based off of, so if you love that film it's a sure bet that you'll love this!
