This is the second-to-longest, feature-length documentary on the DVD of The Adventures of Robin Hood from 1938, and while it isn't possible to talk to most of the people who worked on it(...R.I.P., you bunch of talents... you won't be forgotten anytime soon), this is a rather good retroactive making-of on it. Consisting of clips from it and other movies, interviews with several film historians including Rudy Behlmer(who also provided the fact-heavy commentary track on the disc), Leonard Maltin and a literary person, this is interesting throughout the 55 minutes sans credits(one extra if you count them) running time. They go into the development of the project(Cagney was once slated to star!), the cast, the addition of Technicolor, the archery, budget, score and the director situation. We get a ton of information, and this keeps your attention nicely from start to finish. It's edited and researched well, and I didn't feel like anything had been omitted. Honestly, I had no questions left about the picture when this was over. I recommend this to anyone who likes the subject of this production. 7/10
