PHCL Film Show Presents
The Adventures of Robin Hood
Directed by Michael Curtiz & William Keighley
USA 1938 98 minutes
Starring Starring Errol Flynn & Olivia de Havilland
Introduced by film writer and critic Stefan Pape
To mark the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta, a dashing and delightful action adventure that celebrates the triumph over regal oppression. Galloping steeds, dramatic swordplay and whizzing arrows combine with a fine comedy balance and vivid performances to create spectacular and fast-moving film. It was one of the first movies shot in Technicolor and is also notable for its Oscar-winning music and recreation of medieval Britain in the southern California sun. Lincoln was never so green!
"Magnificent, unsurpassable...the film is lavishly, brilliantly photographed , and has a great Korngold score." NFT 1974
Doors open 7:30pm, Introduction 7:45pm, Film 8:00pm. Tickets cost £8 (including a glass of wine or drink), and are available in the library (on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays) from Friday 5 December. There is a limit of two tickets per person.
