      Sorry! I meant to say “seventy-five” in my comment, but I guess because I posted it early this morning. (EST for the USA) in my rush to get to work, I accidentally omitted the “five”! Any way it has been “75” years since “AORH” premiered in the USA.
      Let’s all say when we first saw this movie. For me I am sure I first watched it as a child as the movie held the record for, I believe it came in third, for movies with most repeated showings of all time on TV . And this is before cable, when you needed an antenna (indoors or outdoors) to watch television. But as I had only vague memories of it, the real first time I saw it was on the big screen as an adult in a retrospective theater and it blew me away!–A. R.

      (P. S. I think only The original “King Kong” and “Casablanca” beat out “Adventures of Robin Hood” as revealed in an article in TV Guide, (the national magazine, not some local newspaper facsimile).–A. R.

        I corrected it for you, A.R.! I figured it was just a mis-typed sentence!
