Zany, innocent fun.
20 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

Miss Robin Hood serves as a cheerful, heart warming, zany British movie. It's not what you'd class as laugh out loud humour, it's more amiable, cheerful viewing. Worth watching solely for Margaret Rutherford, an on screen gem, she is wonderfully eccentric, I would imagine kids watching this at the time would have adored a dotty Great Au t like her. The film represents escapism for youngsters, it must be pointed out that times were hard for people in 1952 Britain, the fantasy world is charming. Richard Hearne does a good job, very straight laced and serious, a good balance for Rutherford's boldness, Sid James is solid, he's not given much to do, but he's always great to watch.

Zany, innocent fun, a snapshot of a time gone by.
