The second feature in our Four Sundays, Four Films Series is an absolute classic. Featuring Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland the film has a classic score by Erich Korngold. Prof. Christopher Palestrant will introduce us to the score in his prelude to the film. Palestrant will help us follow the magnificent score in better appreciate glory of this triple Oscar winner that was also nominated for Best Picture.
"The Adventures of Robin Hood" was made with sublime innocence and breathtaking artistry, at a time when its simple values rang true. 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. We require no Freudian subtext, no revisionist analysis; it is enough that Robin wants to rob the rich, pay the poor and defend the Saxons not against all Normans, only the bad ones: "It's injustice I hate, not the Normans."
The movie involved a couple of firsts: The first Warner Bros. film shot in the three-strip Technicolor process, and the first of 12 times Flynn would be directed by Michael Curtiz. It was the fifth of eight films that Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland would make together. – Roger Ebert
