It's Prince Of Thieves for me. I just never liked the Errol Flynn version very much, even though Prince of Thieves has almost nothing to do with the book.

Pfftp.. I vote Other for the Disney version. :D

Adventures of Robin Hood!

01-06-04, 12:19 PM
nobody better embodied the swashbuckling roguish hero than ...Kevin Costner!

Voted for the Errol Flynn version because he is one of my favorite actors of all-time (John Wayne would be the other); Flynn and Olivia de Havilland were terrific as Robin and Marian.

I really like the Costner version too but I didn't care too much for Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio in the role of Maid Marian.

I wouldn't mind seeing the 90's Patrick Bergin version hit DVD either.

Would it have absolutely killed Costner to even attempt an english accent?

1938 version. No contest.

What about <i>Robin & Marian</i> with Sean Connery and Audrey Hepburn?

Adventures of Robin Hood, hands down. Not only the best Robin Hood movie, but one of the greatest films ever made.

I could not have said it better myself.

Adventures of Robin Hood.

I went with The Prince Of Thieves . . . I think that it captures the spirit of the story really well and, whether or not you like Kevin Costner in the roll, the rest of the cast was phenomenal (especially the bad guys).

01-06-04, 04:30 PM
.. another vote for the Disney version. And I'm actually serious. :)

I only saw Prince of Thieves and really like it. So I'll vote for that one.

01-06-04, 04:40 PM
Prince of Thieves is my favorite.

01-06-04, 04:45 PM
I still can't believe Men in Tights isn't on DVD, those bastards.

Man, I haven't seen that movie in years ... A great movie, but Terry Thomas as Sir Hiss particularly stands out in my memory.

I love the Disney Version and Prince of Thieves but the bottom line for me is....

Errol Flynn in "The Adventures of Robin Hood" IS Robin Hood to me. It's one of the greatest movies of all time in my book.

01-06-04, 08:32 PM
Which ever one is oldest.

01-06-04, 08:49 PM
1938 with Errol Flynn.

01-06-04, 09:49 PM
men in tights. a movie i can watch all day long.

Men In Tights
I always loved the fight on the river.

01-06-04, 10:19 PM
I guess I haven't seen a lot of robin hood movies, but I was coming into this thread to vote for the disney version (other)

01-06-04, 11:33 PM
I enjoy both the Costner and Flynn versions pretty much equallly.

01-07-04, 12:03 AM
Another vote for the Disney version :thumbsup:

The whole stealing the gold using a pully-system over Prince John's head while rocking the snake with one foot while Little John free's the prisoners ranks as one of the greatest heists ever.

01-07-04, 12:38 AM
Errol Flynn all the way!

The Adventures of Robin Hood

01-29-04, 11:06 PM

Robin Hood: The poor are going to be absolutely thrilled. Have you met them at all?
Randall: Who?
Robin Hood: The poor.
Randall: The poor?
Robin Hood: Oh you must meet them. I'm sure you'll like them. Of course they haven't got two pennies to rub together but that's because they're poor.
