Trivia

The great Ralph Faulkner, fencing master and fight coordinator on most of the great Hollywood swashbucklers of the 1930s and 40s here doubles Henry Daniell in the climactic duel scene, much as he had done six years earlier in The Sea Hawk, when Mr Daniell (described as "completely helpless" in a memo to Hal B Wallis, because he couldn't handle a sword) had to fight Errol Flynn.

Goofs

The Regent withdraws the Magna Carta and, when the nobles agree, the Earl of Huntington (the former Robin Hood) vows to fight him and maintain the people's right to rule themselves. In fact, the Magna Carta didn't create a democracy, it was forced upon King John by the nobles to guarantee the rights and establish the political power of the nobles, not the people. The nobles would never have let the Regent withdraw the Magna Carta and strip them of their power. See more »

Excellent Robin hood adventure
13 May 2005 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

The Bandit of Sherwood Froest came on Channel 4 one afternoon recently and I was pleased I taped it.

Robin Hood's son, Robert had now replaced him and in this movie, he gets up to all sorts of adventures. Towards the end, he and his lover get locked up in Nottingham Castle and he is condemned to death. But he escapes, along with his lover and the last scene shows you them snogging. A happy ending.

The Bandit of Sherwood Forest is beautifully shot in colour and is fast paced throughout.

Colenol Wilde plays Robert and Anita Loiuise plays his lover Lady Catherine. The rest of the cast includes Russell Hicks as Robin Hood and George Macready and Edgar Buchanan. Good parts from all.

Watching The Bandit of Sherwood Forest is a good way to spend nearly an hour and half one afternoon or evening. Great fun.

Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
