‘What George Lucas Borrowed from The Adventures of Robin Hood to Make Star Wars’

Errol Flynn exudes exuberance that can’t be understated as the beating heart of the film.

Flynn makes The Adventures of Robin Hood a joy to watch.

Not only did the film get the legend of Robin Hood, of medieval heroes and villains, right, it got them so right that its distillation of the myth is still the gold standard almost a century later.

In 2003, Roger Ebert wrote:

The ideal hero must do good, defeat evil, have a good time, and win the girl. The Adventures of Robin Hood is like a textbook on how to get that right.

— Gentleman Tim
