THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD (1938)

March 8 @ 7:30 pm

 

Alex Film Society Presents

THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD (1938)
Starring Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland

Write a message to Olivia de Havilland at our Robin Hood screening! Bring your best penmanship and tell Ms. de Havilland how much you LOVE and admire her! We will be shipping your notes to France.

Winner of 3 Academy Awards (Art Direction, Original Score, and Film Editing), The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938) is a delightful tale of high adventure, action and colorful pageantry, a great film for the whole family. Errol Flynn, at his swashbuckling best, portrays Robin Hood, the impudent and dashing bandit of Sherwood Forest. His romantic Warner Bros. co-star is once again Olivia de Havilland as the lovely Maid Marian, pursued and threatened by the evil Sir Guy of Gisbourne (Basil Rathbone). Directed by Michael Curtiz (Casablanca), captured in eye-poping, 3-strip Technicolor, with a stirring musical score by Erich Wolfgang Korngold. This is a film that races from start to finish!

Opening the festivities is Rabbit Hood starring Bugs Bunny (Warner Bros. 1949), directed by Chuck Jones. Plus, Warner Bros. Bloopers from Robin Hood and other WB hit movies from 1938 and Howard Hill in ‘King of the Archers’.

We are beyond pleased to present Rory Flynn as our special on-stage guest! Rory will share heartwarming family stories about growing up with her father, Errol Flynn. This magical evening is hosted by former L.A. Times writer Susan King, curator of the wildly popular Classic Hollywood/Los Angeles Times on Facebook.
