Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Richard Gilliam
Douglas Fairbanks in Robin Hood is one of the silent era's best adventure films, a grandly staged epic that represents the height of production values for films of the early 1920s. Although by no means the first film version of the Robin Hood legends, it crystallized for 20th century audiences the popular elements of the Robin Hood stories. The film is a pure star vehicle for Douglas Fairbanks, who also had a direct hand in writing and producing it. He is showcased to great effect in some of the finest stunts and action sequences of the silent era. As with the later Errol Flynn version of the same story, the heroes are very heroic and there is no moral ambiguity. The sets are of particular note. The castle alone was more expensive to build than many films of the early 1920s cost to produce.
