The Adventures of Robin Hood (TV series) - Wikipedia

Posted by 2018 article


The Adventures of Robin Hood is a British television series comprising 143 half-hour, black and white episodes broadcast weekly between 1955 and 1959 [2] on ITV . It stars Richard Greene as the outlaw Robin Hood and Alan Wheatley as his nemesis, the Sheriff of Nottingham . The show followed the legendary character Robin Hood and his band of merry men in Sherwood Forest and the surrounding vicinity. While some episodes dramatised the traditional Robin Hood tales, most episodes were original dramas created by the show's writers and producers.

To mark the end of production on the series Mr. and Mrs. Fisher (Hannah Weinstein and her new husband John Fisher) and Richard Greene threw a final wrap party at The High Pine Club on 10 December 1958, [7] cast members Alexander Gauge, Archie Duncan, Patricia Driscoll with husband Duncan Lamont, Paul Eddington, the Sheriff Alan Wheatley and his deputy John Arnatt attended. Also there were producer Sidney Cole, Ken Hodges (lighting cameraman), Noel Rowland (camera operator), Pip Pearson (sound), and directors including Compton Bennett, Gordon Parry, Terry Bishop, Robert Day, Peter Seabourne, and Anthony Squire, and stuntman Rupert Evans.

There was also an element of self-parody at times that sat uneasily on the series. In one episode, The Challenge, the plot-as-such was finished halfway through the show, and during the rest, the hapless Richard of the Lea and his wife worried as their larder and wine cellar were emptied during a siege with Robin, Little John, and Tuck eating and dancing all day and night.

(1938, Michael Curtiz and William Keighley) With beloved King Richard the Lionheart away at the Crusades and brother Claude Rains plotting to usurp 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. In eye-popping Technicolor.
Film approx. 102 min.  35mm.
Barron & Burtt talk approx. 40 min.

Before the movie, Oscar®-winning visual effects supervisor Craig Barron ( The Curious Case of Benjamin Button ) and Oscar®-winning sound designer Ben Burtt ( Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, E.T.) , whose careers were inspired by classic Hollywood movies, will de-construct the extraordinary artistry behind Robin Hood , with a special emphasis on matte painting and sound effects – including a re-creation of the archery tests that went into finding just that right “zing” sound.
