"Criterion has issued a golden anniversary laserdisc edition that does full justice to one of the best swashbuckling films ever made." --Barbara Saltzman, Los Angeles Times

An excellent cast, superb dialogue, spirited performances, and impressive spectacle make this the best film version of the Prince of Thieves legend. Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland, and Basil Rathbone star in the familiar story of a heroic man stealing from the rich and giving to the poor. Both Criterion editions feature an audio essay by Rudy Behlmer discussing this 1938 classic, the cast and crew, and the evolution of the Robin Hood legend. Directed by Michael Curtiz.

Criterion's CAV edition includes:

  • Excerpts from Robin Hood (1922), with Douglas Fairbanks, and Ivanhoe (1952)
  • Rare home movies of the film in production
  • An extensive collection of illustrations from rare books, music, film and TV versions depicting the Robin Hood legend.
