Bryan Cultural Series
Action, romance, political intrigue, the righting of wrongs with no moral ambiguity—Warner Brothers magnificent 1938 film “The Adventures of Robin Hood” has it all. And now it’s returning to the silver screen thanks to the Bryan Cultural Series.

Featuring the Oscar Award winning score by Erich Korngold, every Robin Hood film that has followed pales by comparison. Directed by Michael Curtiz, who would win an Oscar for “Casablanca” three years later, “The Adventures of Robin Hood” stands the test of time remarkably well. Perhaps it is how clear-cut what is right and wrong in the world of Robin Hood that has kept audiences intrigued by the movie for over 80 years. Here is Robin and Lady Marian talking about justice.

Lady Marian: You’re a strange man.

Robin Hood: Strange? Because I can feel for beaten, helpless people?

Lady Marian: No. You’re strange because you want to do something about it. You’re willing to defy Sir Guy, even Prince John himself, to risk your own life. And one of those men was a Norman!

Robin Hood: Norman or Saxon, what’s that matter? It’s injustice I hate, not the Normans.

Or perhaps the sword play and unerring accuracy of Errol Flynn’s archery, or the the chance to cheer for the good over evil—whatever it may be, the movie is truly a classic.

Errol Flynn was at the height of his powers in 1938 and Olivia de Havilland is radiant and perfect as the Lady Marian. Throw in the insidious evil of Basil Rathbone as the Sheriff of Nottingham and the rousing score by Eric Korngold that tells its own story, and a true movie classic comes to life.

With an introduction and discussion of the film and its score by Dr. Chris Palestrant, Professor of Music Composition at ECSU, “The Adventures of Robin Hood” is a must see film for the whole family.

The Bryan Cultural Series will screen the film on Sunday, February 27 at 4:00 p.m. at the R/C Kill Devil Hills Movies 10, 1800 N. Croatan Highway, Kill Devil Hills.
