Stop by the Colonial Theatre on Saturday at 2pm to see The Adventures of Robin Hood.

About the film
In this, one of the most colorful (in every sense of the word!) versions of the Robin Hood legend, Flynn creates a memorable portrayal of that most famous of all romantic heroes. The Adventures of Robin Hood has been rightly called one of the greatest adventure films of all time, and Flynn is at his peak: handsome, dashing and athletic. As the Cinema Movie Guide has pointed out, “Flynn is everything that Robin Hood should be, with a wicked sense of humor to boot.” Along with Olivia DeHavilland as the comely Maid Marian, the film features some of Warner Brothers’ finest character actors – Claude Rains, Alan Hale, Eugene Pallette, Patric Knowles, and many other merry men – who create indelible portrayals of the key characters in this well-remembered tale. The color photography won a well-deserved Academy Award, as did the editing and the rousing score by Erich Wolfgang Korngold. And if you think that the sword fight with Basil Rathbone in Captain Blood was amazing, watch their rematch at the climax of this film – it is truly breath-taking!

Rated PG. 102 min.
