Did You Know?

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:
Factual errors: 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 »
Quotes:
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.

TIGHTS, FIGHTS & RIGHTS -ALRIGHT?, 29 January 2001
Author: (t.mcparland@ntlworld.com) from LONDON UK

This is the one where Columbia decided to re-do Warner Brothers' ROBIN HOOD [1938]. But there was a problem. That one ended- like World War II- with Robin vanquishing England's enemies; now boring old peace had broken out again and both Richard the Lionheart and Robin were nearing the colostomy bag stage. Hell -Robin hada been doing sumpin all those years? Heck yes! He had done what every returned American GI did -he procreated! He had a son -Bob Hood [Cornel Wilde] who looked more Czechoslovakian than English but no matter. Same dab hand with a bow a blow and a beauty, same mindless sense of humour -a pea from the pod you might say; except he couldn't be pea green like colostomy-quivering Robin, but grey. Grey Bob was allowed green underwear, though.

So much for his hose -but what about foes? History was singularly unhelpful, because in spite of green Robin & his Geriatrics' heroics the dreaded King John succeeded King Dick and died in his bed. So -what do do? Well. Columbia's script department came up with the despotic Regent [Henry Danielle] who could have been any one of a number shadowy XII century characters, and -straight from an American child-actor catalogue- a boy King [Maurice Tauzin] who had to be prevented from signing anything.

So, Bob with a cause still needed to get his paws on a broad. Enter a bleach blonde cut-price Betty Grable with a voice to die from, Lady Catherine Maitland [Anita Louise] and this technicolor 1940 period Valhalla was complete. This movie is unique for raising awareness of [1] medieval colour blindness -because in spite of having red lips that would halt freeway traffic, and a bombshell hairdon't, Anita Louise manages to pass herself off as the Prioress of Buxton -and [2] the little-known practice of becoming muscular on half female prison rations -which Bob did before putting paid to the evil Regent.

Generally the supporting players, Jill Esmond [Queen Mother] looking older than 38, but back in movies after being deserted with a new-born baby in 1940 by Laurence Olivier for Vivien Leigh, Lloyd Corrigan [Sheriff of Nottingham] and George Macready [Fitz-Herbert], helped make this the kind of movie which made -not only kids but adults- leave the cinema feeling braver, stronger and more righteous.
