"Count de Walden" is kidnapping free men and using them for his military service, even innocent 14-year-old kids, which has one grandma really upset, enough to contact her friend "Maid Marian" (Bernadette O'Farrell).
Why is the count taking men and buying all the weapons and armor in the territory? That is for "Robin Hood" and his cohorts to discover and to stop. Marian tells Robin what's what and through her, the "outlaws" hope to penetrate the Count's castle and free the captives, along with thwarting his plans.
All of this takes place in another fairly action-paced episode which looks corny is spots but one has to remember this was a kids' show probably more than for adults, although both enjoyed this back in the 1950s. It's still pretty darned entertaining. Richard Greene is always good as "Robin Hood" and O'Farrell made a beautiful "Marian." Phillips is good as "Count de Walden," a man who gets careless and stupid over a pretty woman. Hey, that sounds familiar!
