Al Hedison had to have 3 stitches put in a deep cut in his sword hand sustained in a duel with David Farrar and for a lot of the film he was hobbling from a foot injury which he got while rehearsing a fight scene with a stuntman. See more »


Throughout the film there are scenes featuring an exterior shot of the front of Des Roches' castle. Every time we see this, there is a horse and rider standing near the main entrance. This horse never moves and is always in exactly the same position, revealing it to be part of the painted backdrop. See more »

The Son of Robin Hood
9 August 2009 | by mhrabovsky6912See all my reviews

Absolutely, ridiculous tale of Robin Hood's alleged son who is really a girl....don't get too confused.....it confused me at first....tale concerns Robin Hood's offspring who was expected to be a man, who comes back to England to fight, not the Sheriff of Nottingham, but a bird named "DeRoche"......Al Hedison inherits the role of Robin Hood's son as it appears RH did not have a true son.....ridiculous acting, poorly staged action battles and acting worse than "Plan Nine from Outer Space".....in one instance a group of Deroche's men try to corner the men of Sherwood and Robin Hood's daughter shoots an arrow in a man in a tree who was a spotter for DeRoche.....man falls out of tree and no where are the 25 men of DeRoche after the shooting!!!! Cardboard castle walls among the other ditties....want more - son of Robin Hood gets invited to DeRoche's castle and soon starts bedding DaRoche's girlfriend!!!! Whew!!! No recognizable actors of any renown.....Robin Hood's men (25 years older!!!!) wipe out the bad guys along with Hedison......this total production by 1959 standards could not have cost more than $100,000 to make.....where was Peter Cushing in this film???? Go figure.......
