An adventuresome young man goes off to find himself and loses his socialite fiancée in the process. But when he returns 10 years later, she will stop at nothing to get him back, even though she is already married.
This is a 'making of' featurette included with the DVD release of THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD--one of the truly great pictures of the 1930s. However, unlike many such films, this one is rather long--at almost an hour in length. Sadly, this film has no closed captions nor DVD captions.
Unfortunately, since the original film came out 65 years before this featurette, there is a weakness of the film--you don't get interviews with those involved with actually making the film. Almost all of them have died and Olivia de Havilland apparently wasn't available or perhaps wasn't interested in participating. However, despite this, the people who did contribute seemed to know quite a bit about the film and provided a few interesting tidbits that I have never heard of--though I won't spoil the film by discussing them further. In addition to these interviews, extensive clips of the original movie, the Douglas Fairbanks version and stills were used in addition.
Overall, a very interesting little film and a must-see for anyone, like myself, who loves THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD.
