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.

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?

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

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).

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

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.
