Did You Know?


The composer of the score, Hugo Friedhofer, worked on the earlier Errol Flynn classic "The Adventures of Robin Hood" as chief orchestrator for Erich Wolfgang Korngold's award winning score. Certain elements from that score can be heard in Friedhofer's work. See more »


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 »


Fitz-Herbert: Your life is too precious to England. You will enjoy this traitor's death no less if I slaughter him for you!
The Regent. William of Pembroke: Thank you, Fitz-Herbert, but this is one thing I wish to do myself.
