Robin Hood: The Truth Behind Hollywood's Most Filmed Legend Trailers & Videos
Where to Watch
As written and directed by author, filmmaker and historian Philip Gardiner, this documentary program carries viewers beyond the Hollywood iconography associated with Robin Hood - the rogue thief who stole from the rich and gave to the poor - to investigate the historical truth belying the legend. It seeks to answer fundamental questions about the actual existence of Robin, Maid Marian and the outlaws of Sherwood Forest, the origins of the Robin Hood stories, and which elements of the stories actually transpired centuries ago. The film at hand was shot on location in Sherwood Forest, England - said to be Robin's old stomping ground. The program features numerous dramatic reenactments and a score by James Earnshaw and the ensemble No Redemption.
