Storyline

In prohibition-era Chicago, the corrupt sheriff and Guy Gisborne, a south-side racketeer, knock off the boss Big Jim. Everyone falls in line behind Guy except Robbo, who controls the north side. Although he's outgunned, Robbo wants to keep his own territory. A pool-playing dude from Indiana and the director of a boys' orphanage join forces with Robbo; and, when he gives some money to the orphanage, he becomes the toast of the town as a hood like Robin Hood. Meanwhile, Guy schemes to get rid of Robbo, and Big Jim's heretofore unknown daughter Marian appears and goes from man to man trying to find an ally in her quest to run the whole show. Can Robbo hold things together? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

The coolest guys on Earth
26 January 1999 | by (Urbana, Illinois) – See all my reviews

Robin and the Seven Hoods is a great movie. Many critics place it below Sinatra's other films, but I think it is one of his best. Dean Martin plays Little John to Sinatra's Robin hood and he definitely has all of the smooth lines. Bing Crosby is great as the minister who helps Robbo in covering up his speakeasy. Put all of this together with great songs and an overacting Peter Falk and you have yourself one wonderful movie
