Hump Day Classic Movie: The Adventures of Robin Hood

Okay, we've seen every conceivable version of the Robin Hood legend on film. From Kevin Costner's horrible accent to the animated Disney version featuring animals. But have you seen THIS version? Not the highlights. The entire movie.

It's from way back in 1938 and features Errol Flynn in one of his iconic roles.

Here's why I love this version.

Errol Flynn in a swashbuckler (you're gasping in surprise, right?).
Olivia deHavilland as someone (anyone) other than Melanie in GWTW.
Basil Rathbone as Sir Guy of Gisbourne

Sherwood Forest is actually Bidwell Park in Chico, CA. My "general" neck of the woods.

It's so incredibly cheesy. But it is THE version I love for silliness. And the sword fights. They are awesome.
