Excellent telling of the Robin Hood legend
26 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this series on PBS in the late 1970s. Having always been a Robin Hood fan, I have collected as many of the various versions of the story of the ultimate hero as I have been able to find, and truly wish that this version was available on DVD. Maybe if enough fans of this version would write directly to PBS, they might make a DVD available.

Lead Martin Potter and the rest of the cast were well chosen and all did very well in their respective roles. The production values seemed at times very cheap, but the story and the acting kept me from being distracted.

Most of all I remember the series host American actor Bill Bixby who recounted at the end of the story that a small gravestone was found in England that said (to the best of my recollection):

"Here, beneath this little stone Lies Robert, Earl of Huntington. No archer was as he so good, and people called him Robin Hood." (or something very like this). If this is just my imagination, I hope someone else writes a review correcting my assumption, but this is how I remember it!

I haven't heard of any other report to corroborate this but, if true, it certainly points to the existence of an actual hero, not just the exaggerated legend of today that talks about a compilation of various heroes whose deeds make up the Robin Hood legend.

In any event, I highly recommend this to anyone who can find the series nowadays in some watchable media format. It's well worth watching!
