Trivia

This movie marks Alan Hale's third film appearance, in three different decades, as Little John. He had previously played the role in Robin Hood (1922) and The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938). The 28 years between his performances in Robin Hood and Rogues is probably the longest period for any actor to appear in the same major role in film history. See more »

Cause I'm the tax man!yeah! I'm the tax man!
2 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

no more no less a rehash, nay a photocopy of "Robin Hood":oddly the famous hero is dead ans it's his son (Derek)'s turn to fight the nasty prince helped by his old man's former companions,who,although older than Robin ,are still alive and kicking;they do not seem to have aged a bit. And what about Lady Marian?;i guess it's not the same woman ,although we're not told about the son's mom (must be Marian ).Isn't there something Freudian in the love affair,Derek and his darling being pale copies of Flynn and De Havilland ?

The prince is ruthless:pay your taxes or you'll rot in a dungeon !and they even take a little boy's pigeons !and they even cheat the nobles !and they hang you over the slightest thing!

Not a good film by the talented Gordon Douglas.
