Ooh-de-lally! In honor of its 41st anniversary, we revisit 1973’s Robin Hood, our eighth commentary originally posted August 2013. Your commentators for this trip to Medieval England include Albert Gutierrez, Pedro Hernandez, and Kelvin Cedeño. Each of us share different perspectives towards this film, as we discuss its production, earlier concepts set in the American South, literary comparisons to incarnations of Robin Hood and Aesop’s fables, the film’s connections to popular culture and world events of its era, and our own personal views towards the film in both a childhood context and as revisited nostalgia.
