Still another new book…

17 Dec

While searching for Errol Flynn The Illustrated Life Chronology cover photo, I happened upon this:

Errol, Olivia & the Merry Men of Sherwood: The Making of The Adventures of Robin Hood (Golden Age of Hollywood, Behind the Scenes Series) Paperback – February 7, 2020 by Rupert Alistair

Kurt Burgess, Amazon reviewer:
3.0 out of 5 stars A BLOG’S HARDCOPY
Reviewed in the United States on March 14, 2020

For any fan of 1938’s glorious “The Adventures of Robin Hood” this “booklet” can be a keepsake and it won’t take up any room on your bookshelf. It is a vast compilation and editing of many previous articles or filmed interviews with a few new tidbits massaged in. There are some small inset photos sprinkled about, most of which have been published before. The porous paper used in printing does not do them justice, however. Rupert Alistair has a quiver full of notes and references in his bibliography filling the last 19 pages. This is his latest “Golden Age of Hollywood: Behind the Scenes Series.” It is information one might find in a movie blog, still, the work is a small price to pay for devoted fans of the movie or the novice. Depending on your location, it could be read in its entirety while waiting in traffic.

    Great find, Karl! The most iconic film Errol ever made and a wonderful gift idea, too …

    Small in size, big on content. A must read for all merry women and men of this blog.
