1938 - The Adventures Of Robin Hood

1938 - The Adventures Of Robin Hood

Another revisiting of a classic story, 1938 brings us back to Sherwood Forest with The Adventures of Robin Hood, directed by the prolific Michael Curtiz. Our first real color film, Robin Hood utilized the relatively new 3-strip Technicolor process, bringing star Errol Flynn’s swashbuckling to vibrant life. We discuss the 3-strip process, Curtiz’s and Flynn’s careers and clashes, the influence of the score and sound design, and compare with the 1922 silent version - and Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1993).
