‘Last Of Robin Hood’ Not Released In Chicago

29 Aug

For whatever reason, The Last Of Robin Hood was not released today in the Chicago area.   Can anyone verify if it opened elsewhere today in the USA?   If yes, can you post some reviews?  Thanks Ralph

    I haven’t yet found it in Southeast Florida, Ralph. It is going to be playing (5 hours away) in Tampa, though – for two or three days, I believe.

      Thanks Inga, and to Robert. Chicago and the mid-west will just have to wait. Ralph

      Does this info come from some special list, Inga/Robert? If so, could you please send it for all of us, as local information is not consistent with this. For example, local theater guides list no show times whatsoever for this film, as they do for others. I’m hoping you’re right, of course. Tampa, not on your list, has the biggest showing I can find, at the historic Tampa Theater, which specializes in featuring limited release films.

      Here, for example, is a link of all movie showings for all theaters in Boca Raton, where I am presently located. A second link shows all listings for Palm Beach & Broward.

      So please do tell me what theaters your list has, in Boca Raton would be best! Thanks.

          Thanks, Inga. The delayed national release explains why there are no ads or show times available yet through normal channels. I’m sure there will be next week. The only exception (which is not on your list) is for the great Tampa Theater, which is where I would most enjoy seeing the film, especially as it’s the only theater showing LORH that used to also feature Errol’s immortal films when they were first released:

          Hi Inga and Robert;
          Have you got any news as to when the movie will come to Canada?

    It’s opening in Charlotte, North Carolina, today, but it’s a 7.5 hour drive one way for me. And I’m not up to driving that far this week. I hope I’ll get to see it on a big screen before its run is over. It’s showing in New York at the Paris Theatre on 4W 58th Street, and I’ll be in NYC for three weeks on September 5. Maybe I’ll catch it there!

      How wonderful it wold be to see at The Paris, David! Flynn used to often stay right down the block, at the Savoy-Plaza Hotel, just south of the Sherry, east of The Plaza. He surely knew of the theater, as it was all the rage when it opened in the autumn of ’48, with Errol’s old buddie, Marlene Dietrich, heading the ceremonies, with a delegation from France. In fact, I believe Errol was staying at the Savoy when he was arrested for doing an Australian stomp on one of New York’s finest – only a couple of months after the Grande Opening of The Paris.

      The Paris is immediately behind (south of) The Plaza in this great photo blow. The Savoy Plaza, now long gone, is the building in the middle, directly west of The Plaza, with the very cool triangular or trapezoidal roof, with twin vents or chimney stacks at its top.

      Have fun, David!!

        I know this area well. As it happens, I’ll be in NYC on September 5. This view is full of trees and walkways now plus a subway entrance is up on the street beside the Plaza but farther from the intersection where the Plaza sits. Columbus Circle isn’t too far from the Plaza.

        The Shoreham Hotel where Flynn and Earl Conrad spent three weeks going over the mss. of My wicked, wicked Ways line by line in Errol’s apartment there is a seven minute walk from the Plaza Hotel.

          Man, you know your Manhattan, David! In the opening of this video on the Shoreham, the camera perspective is from where the Savoy-Plaza once was. At 0.06, there’s a very quick glimpse of The Paris Theater, next to Bergdorf’s. I believe the old Shoreham primarily used to be an upscale business hotel. Errol & Earl must have really got down to business.

    Hi all!
    I’m back after a few months hiatus, and I’m so happy to hear this film is finally being released in US theaters this weekend! I heard it’ll be showing in New York City for sure. I don’t know if I’ll be able to catch it in theaters, but if not then I’ll wait until it’s released on DVD and get a copy to watch. In the meantime, here’s a link to the film’s trailer posted on YouTube:

    Robert Florczak wrote me earlier today but I was off my feed and didn’t see his note:

    Please clarify on the blog that today is the opening of “The Last of Robin Hood” only in NY and L.A. The full nationwide release is next Friday the 5th of September.

    And, yes, you may quote me on this also!

    We had been having a private joke, and Robert sent me the words, “Errol who?”

    And I asked him If I could quote him on that?
