Technicolor Restoration

Starring ERROL FLYNN

(1938, Michael Curtiz & William Keighley) With beloved King Richard the Lionheart away at the Crusades and brother Claude Rains plotting to unsurp the throne, it’s time for Errol Flynn’s Sir Robin of Locksley to step in. A swashbuckling apotheosis for the Hollywood adventure movie and for Flynn, going toe-to-toe with Basil Rathbone’s grim-lipped Sir Guy of Gisbourne in a swordfight on enormous castle steps – with time out for romancing Olivia de Havilland. Approx. 102 min. DCP.

REVIEWS

"THE KIND OF HOLLYWOOD FILM TO WHICH STAR WARS PAYS TRIBUTE!"
– Time Out (London)

"Errol Flynn is jaunty, romantic, and larger than life, but also slyly funny. Robin Hood is movie pageantry at its best, done in the grand manner of silent spectacles, brimming over with the sort of primitive energy that drew people to the movies in the first place"
– Elliott Stein, Village Voice

“In these cynical days when swashbucklers cannot be presented without an ironic subtext, this great 1938 film exists in an eternal summer of bravery and romance”
– Roger Ebert
