The Adventures of Robin Hood -- Rousing costume adventure tale pitting the good Robin (Errol Flynn), Lttle John (Alan Hale), Friar Tuck (Eugene Pallette) and the rest of the Merry Men of Sherwood Forest against the nasty Prince John (Claude Rains) and the Sheriff of Nottingham (Basil Rathbone), with the lovely Maid Marian (Olivia de Havilland) serving as pawn. Directed by Michael Curtiz and William Keighley, the story's fight against injustice is treated with sincerity but told playfully, the color photography adds zest to the action scenes and the Warner Brothers' cast of supporting players seem to be having as good a time as the leads. Vintage but still sparkling. (A-I) (br) (1938)
