Errol’s Adventures of Robin Hood Voted One of Top Films for Children

15 Feb

“From The Kid to Toy Story, cinema has given us thousands of indelible ways to entertain and stimulate children, and subdue the difficult ones. We all grew up with classics that have stuck with us: for some it was Pixar; others were weaned on the classics of Disney animation or Studio Ghibli’s fantasical otherworlds. But what should you be treating your kids to first? Glad you asked because we’ve done weighing up this very question. Tears were shed and hair was pulled but eventually we came up with 50 of the finest kids films in cinema. And, hey, we’re all friends again now.

Look in the dictionary for “swashbuckling” and you will find Errol Flynn’s broad-as-it-is-long smile grinning back at you. His effortlessly charismatic turn as the heroic outlaw is surely definitive screen version (sorry, Kevin), in a crowd-pleasing technicolour adventure that transcends its eight-decade age. Lavish production values, classical Hollywood starriness, and a cast of thousands – even cynical 21st-century children will be hooked.”…

    Dito Tim! ….. How wonderful it is to have films from an era of slightly innocent fare. No subliminal brain manipulation of children.or adults. Adventures that dreams are made of. So do I trash the newer stuff? Well I think many films of today are very manipulative for what reasons I no not of.

      Usually to market products. I’m sure there were a fair number of toys marketed for Flynn’s efforts in Robin Hood. But platant marketing of characters for toys none beats Disney, or Star Wars!
