After the success of Disney's first live-action feature, TREASURE ISLAND, the studio decided to make another, again in Britain, this time based on the legend of Robin Hood. Unfairly dismissed today as merely a Disney adventure, this version holds up nearly as well as Michael Curtiz's THE
ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD (1938), but doesn't offer a cast that can compare with Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland, Basil Rathbone, and Claude Rains. The story is a familiar one--Robin Hood and his band of merry men trying to save the poor folks of Nottingham from Prince John's greedy ways--but,
given the Disney treatment, the legendary heroes and events seem even more romantic.
