As a palate cleanser from Rent, let's watch a clip of a great movie- 1938's The Adventures of Robin Hood. The legend of Robin Hood must be one of the most frequently filmed stories in existence; I have seen quite a few of them, and this version has always been my favourite. I must confess, however, that I have a fondness for the 1973 animated Disney version as well. The Robin Hood movie which I didn't really appreciate was 1991's Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves starring Kevin Costner. I had never bothered to see it, but some guy friends insisted we watch it one movie night as it was one of their favourites. They were somewhat annoyed when I and another sister who was present kept giggling uncontrollably at the "dramatic" parts, like Christian Slater's angst-y rant. But how could we help it? We had grown up watching the wonderful 1938 film, which is so much better than Prince of Thieves, which was joyless, and funnier when it didn't mean to be that it was when it was attempting to be humorous. The Adventures of Robin Hood has a stellar cast: Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland, Basil Rathbone, and Claude Rains to name just a few. It's a great adventure story with a lot of heart and humour, and also an amazing sound track. Love it.
