19 August 2014 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film came out about one year before the Richard Greene TV series.Although the later was made on a small budget at Walton studios it comes out as infinitely superior to this film.It looks as if Hammer have blown the budget on the Eastman colour.Everything else seems to have been done on the cheap.There seem to be very few inhabitants of the forest or the castle.The situations are quite poor and the action scenes not very exciting.Don Taylor makes an undistinguished Robin Hood.In fact the only decent actor in the bunch is Reginald Beckwith who does a good turn as Friar Tuck.A big problem is that there isn't a decent Sheriff.Alas no Claude Rains or Peter Cushing.So all told a fairly uninspiring effort.
