This is probably one of the first incarnations of Robin Hood I remember seeing aside from the Disney animated version. Its most likely nostalgia that I remember it fondly for I saw it many times in the early 80's on HBO when i was a kid. I loved this version.
I thought it was a great retelling of the tale, and loved how it showed everyone getting together. I think this is a must see for all Robin Hood lovers. As i remember there isn't much action in it by todays standards, its more of a feel good movie.
I have also been searching for a copy of this movie for years as well. If any knows where i might be able to obtain one please let me know.
