When Friar Tuck and Robin de Courtney are beset by Nottiingham's men in the forest, Tuck is wearing what is unmistakably a watch on his left wrist - one of the most stunning goofs I've ever seen in a movie. As the rest of the scene unfolds, he keeps his left wrist covered, obviously having realized that he had been wearing the watch. In the subsequent scene round the campfire, there is nothing on his left or right wrist. What were the editors thinking. Indeed, what professional actor worth his salt would have erred so stupidly. Lost all interest in the movie from that point on. See more »
In the fog of a child's memory... every movie was a hit.
The previous reviewer's summation of this movie seems to ring true, especially the part about seeing it over and over on HBO as a child. I have been looking for a copy of this movie for almost ten years ( video stores, garage sales, flea markets, etc.) and no such luck.
Does anyone have any ideas? Someone make me a copy for christ sake. I will send the BBC their royalties if it comes down to that.
Feel free to write me with any suggestions or comments on the movie.
I wouldn't hazard a guess at the plot or acting as I haven't seen the flick in about 21 years.
