[dressed as a page boy being held back by Little John]
Let me go, you monster! Let me go!
Hey, John. Give me that lad.
[Marian is tossed to Robin]
Let me down, you... you white faced...
Well, you're a pretty lad and sweetly tempered. Like a lady I used to know.

As with 1938's "The Adventures of Robin Hood" w/ Errol Flynn and Olivia de Haviland Disney tries at making it's own version of the famous Robin Hood legend and succeeds admirably! Richard Todd is the perfect Robin Hood being a classic 1950s heartthrob and sporting a 50s haircut to boot and Joan Rice is a sweet and convincing Maid Marian. The script also presents a clever touch at including a wandering minstrel who weaves the story together in song. The only flaw I found was the overly-bright lighting causing the cinematography to be suffering a budget. But other than that, "The Story of Robin Hood" is very well-written, well-directed, well-acted and well worth the purchase of the video.
