1922 - Robin Hood

1922 - Robin Hood

Our pick for 1922 is adventure classic Robin Hood, directed by Allan Dwan and starring Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. This is the first film we featured that truly feels like a Hollywood blockbuster, as we know them today. The level of cartoony violence combined with light-hearted humor makes the film very fun, if not a little sadistic. Discussion hits the grandiose sets, the sheer amount of costumed extras, the echoes we see in future films like Batman Begins, and just how merry the merry men are. Watch the movie here.
