Trivia

Character actor Miles Mander appears very briefly early in the film as "Lord Warrick". He is mentioned again late in the film, implying that Mr. Mander ended up on the cutting room floor. See more »

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 »

Cornel Wilde stars in swashbuckling saga as son of Robin Hood...
28 April 2007 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Hot off the heels of his starring role as Chopin in A SONG TO REMEMBER, actor CORNEL WILDE was actually a fine choice to play the swashbuckling title role since he was an athlete of Olympian proportions. ANITA LOUISE, originally considered for the Maid Marian role in Flynn's film version, plays the lovely Lady Catherine.

It's strictly Saturday matinée stuff from Columbia, splashed with gorgeous Technicolor scenery but unfortunately a script that is only occasionally interesting enough to warrant the royal treatment given the production values and costumes.

Interestingly, Tony Gaudio photographed it (he did Errol's ROBIN HOOD) and all of it looks like it was filmed yesterday in the brightest of hues. JILL ESMOND, RUSSELL HICKS (as Robin Hood), LLOYD CORRIGAN, GEORGE MACREADY, EDGAR BUCHANAN (as Friar Tuck) and reliable villain HENRY DANIELL (wickedly plotting the death of a boy King) are all satisfactory in supporting roles. Only really miscast actor seems to be JOHN ABBOT as Will Scarlett.

It works on a certain level as a zestful Robin Hood film, but is really nothing special despite spirited performances by CORNEL WILDE and ANITA LOUISE as the leads.

For an entertaining hour and twenty minutes, it's well worth watching but it's directed without any particular style by George Sherman.
