Miss Robin Hood is directed by John Guillermin and co-written by Val Valentine, Patrick Campbell, and Geoffrey Orme; from the story written by Reed De Rouen. It stars Margaret Rutherford and Richard Hearne. Music is orchestrated by Temple Abady (John Hollingsworth directing) and photography is by Arthur Grant. Plot finds Hearne as amiable newspaper columnist Henry Wrigley, who gets roped in to robbery by eccentric old dear Miss Honey (Rutherford). All for a good cause you understand.......

Out of Group 3 productions, Miss Robin Hood sadly doesn't play out as worthy of the cast assembled for it. I would go so far as to say it's easily the weakest of the films that were found and received a DVD release under the Hollywood Classics Ltd banner of Long Lost Comedy Classics. Story is sweet enough, cast are fine, particularly Rutherford (more energy than actresses' half her age back then), Sid James, James Robertson Justice and Dora Bryan, but the film seems caught between trying to be screwball, farce or a cunningly crafted fantasy. The odd moment of hilarity does surface (car chase, a drunk Hearne), but these quickly get lost in the mix as director Guillermin (The Blue Max/Death on the Nile) fires a blunderbuss and hopes all the pellets land in the same place to form a cohesive circle. They don't.

Still, it's not a total wash out, the cast ensure it's at least watchable, and it's always fun to play spot the future star of British TV and cinema in these 50s Brit Coms. Look out for the likes of Reg Varney and Kenneth Connor here. While the music score is very pleasant and chipper, and Grant's photography is lean and at times purposely off kilter. Core essence of plot, too, is worthy of a hearty bravo shouted from the back of the theatre, but execution behind the camera and translation from the written page leaves it too messy for its own good. 5/10
