Great documentary for fans
17 January 2016 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

An entertaining and informative documentary about the makings of the classic Warner Bros. film, The Adventures of Robin Hood. It's a bonus feature on the film's DVD, as well as showing up on TCM from time to time. The documentary goes into great detail about the history of the character of Robin Hood and what led Warner Bros. to make the film that would become the definitive version of the tale. We get insights on the film's production and its cast, as well as some nice behind-the-scenes pics and footage. Most of the talking heads are familiar faces like Leonard Maltin, Robert Osborne, and Rudy Behlmer. My favorite part is when they're discussing the art direction, sets, etc. and we get fascinating bits of info like Carl Jules Weyl spraying the fall foliage green for scenes shot outdoors. Adventures of Robin Hood is such a beautiful-looking movie with breathtaking colors. It's really a treat to see some of the tricks of old-school filmmaking that were used to craft this classic film. This is definitely something any fan of The Adventures of Robin Hood will want to watch.
