Editorial Reviews

Cornel Wilde (The Greatest Show on Earth) stars as the son of Robin Hood in this lavish Technicolor swashbuckler. William of Pembroke, Regent of England imprisons the young King of England, and moves to repeal the Magna Carta returning England to autocratic rule. Robert of Huntington (Wilde) joins his father and his reunited band of men to save the boy King and England from tyranny. Anita Louise plays Lady Catherine, Robert’s love interest. The cast also includes Jill Esmond (Random Harvest), Edgar Buchanan, George Macready, Russell Hicks (as Robin Senior), Lloyd Corrigan and many more. Tony Gaudio, the accomplished cinematographer (who shot the Errol Flynn version of the story in 1938) once again uses the Technicolor palette to bring Henry Levin’s lush conceptualization of the Robin Hood tale to the screen. This is among the very finest depictions of one of England’s most fabled heroes.

One of the laws of inevitability dictates that Robin Hood films come out every so often. To tie in with Russell Crowe's turn as the Sherwood outlaw, four movies - decades old and not exactly classics but all featuring Robin Hood - were simultaneously released on DVD: Columbia Pictures' PRINCE OF THIEVES, ROGUES OF SHERWOOD, and this one THE BANDIT OF SHERWOOD FOREST, and also Hammer's SWORD OF SHERWOOD FOREST.

1946's THE BANDIT OF SHERWOOD FOREST centers on Robin Hood's equally dashing son more so than on Robin Hood himself. It's been 20 years now since Robin Hood's heyday, but tyranny never sleeps for long, it apparently just takes catnaps. On the heels of the late wicked King John struts William of Pembroke, the ambitious Lord Regent of England. The Lord Regent (Henry Daniell, channeling his inner snake) decides that the Magna Carta isn't his cup of tea, that the people are not fit to rule themselves. He withdraws the Magna Carta and takes forceful custody of the boy King of England. When Robin Hood (Russell Hicks), greyer but just as feisty, dares to speak out against the Regent, he is promptly banished. But the Regent didn't account for Robin Hood's son Robert (Cornel Wilde), who journeys from the North Country to take up his father's battle.

Not that Robin Hood's exactly the shy retiring sort. Again an outlaw, grizzled but still gallant, Robin Hood has marshaled his old band of merry bandits and again has taken up residence in the Sherwood Forest. When Robert returns to the fold, a daring plan is hatched to rescue the young king. As the story unfolds, we get to see young Robert flirt with the lovely Lady Catherine and show off his adeptness with archery.

Format: DVD
Although 1950's lacklustre Rogues of Sherwood Forest saw John Derek take on his fictional father's mantle to dispiritingly little effect, Columbia had done the whole son of Robin Hood thing four years earlier and much better in 1946's The Bandit of Sherwood Forest, with a slightly sleazy and wildly over-confident Cornel Wilde as Robert Hood (well, Robert of Huntingdon). He's called into the fray when his father (Russell Hicks) and the Merry Men, who are beginning to feel their age, renew the fight against tyranny after King John's death when Henry Daniell's evil Regent overthrows the Magna Carta and plans to kill the child king and steal his throne.

There's not much that's unexpected and despite the truly glorious Technicolor (courtesy of Tony Gaudio, who shot Errol Flynn's Adventures of Robin Hood with Sol Polito a decade earlier) and two directors (Henry Levin and George Sherman) it's hardly an A-list production, but it does it enjoyably enough en route to its final duel between Wilde and Daniell, who, caddish to the last, tries to starve the outlaw for three days before their Trial by Combat to give himself an edge. Neither Wilde nor his very 40s leading lady Anita Louise exactly dominate the screen (dialogue like "What's a pretty girl like you doing all alone in Sherwood Forest?" "I'm the scullery maid" doesn't help) while George Macready is wasted in a bit part as Daniell's sidekick, but it's good looking undemanding Saturday matinee stuff that's rather better produced than the material probably deserves.

The only extra is a trailer for Hammer's Sword of Sherwood Forest.

Even though Errol Flynn was probably the best Robin Hood "The Bandit of Sherwood Forest" is worth watching and adding to your collection. The actors are Cornel Wilde as Robert of Nottingham son of Robin Hood. Russell Hicks as Robin Hood. Henry Daniell as William of Pembroke Regent of England. George Macready as Fitz-Herbert the Regent's partner and Anita Louise as Lady Catherine lady in waiting to the Queen mother who is played by Jill Esmond. The movie was based on a novel "Son of Robin Hood"
All in all you get a young Robin Hood striking his arrow against tyranny. The Regent of England William Pembroke wants to get rid of the boy king and place himself upon the throne. A very common plot. Robin Hood gathers all the Barons to meet at Nottingham Castle and finds out from the Regent that the Magna Carta will not be used and the people will be taxed. Robin Hood is exiled from England. (King John Lackland was forced to sign the Magna Carta by the Barons.)
The boy king is arrested and put in the Regent's care. The Queen mother and Lady Catherine go to Robin Hood for help pretending to be scullery maids. Robert meets the women and takes them to an old woman's house.(Cornel Wilde is not quite as good as Errol Flynn but he was a good actor. Robert meets Friar Tuck played by Edgar Buchanan and they fight with swords. I don't like this Tuck as well as the one in the Errol Flynn version. Robert and his father go to the old woman's house and Robin recognizes the Queen Mother. Of course Lady Catherine and Robert fall in love and she joins their circle. (The only downside to the film is Anita Louise. While she was lovely and a good actress she was to Hollywood looking. What I mean is putting the heavy makeup aside her hair style was to forties fifties.
