Editorial Reviews

From legendary producer Sam Katzman and Academy Award®-winning writer Charles Schnee (The Bad and the Beautiful, 1952) comes this rousing adventure of England’s most beloved bandit. Iconic action star Jon Hall (Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves) stars as Robin Hood, who rescues Maid Marian (Broadway star Patricia Morison) and her brother from an unseen attacker. Because of their opposition to the ruthless rule of Prince John, their lives are in danger and his impending marriage threatened. So the Merry Men saddle up and ride to Nottingham Castle to save England and true love. Filmed in Cinecolor, the film features Hollywood veterans including Adele Jergens, Alan Mowbray, H.B. Warner, Gavin Muir and comic great Syd Saylor, Prince of Thieves is rollicking fun for all ages.

3.0 out of 5 stars A 'Saturday Matinee' Robin Hood Just for Fun... November 10, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you are a student of the Bandit of Sherwood, love Renaissance Fairs, read Chaucer (or Alexandre Dumas, whose writings 'inspired' this film) for fun, and take 12th and 13th century English history seriously, you might prefer to 'pass' on this production...from the opening moments, when tall, somewhat portly Jon Hall (in red boots!) intones Robin Hood's first lines...with a slight drawl...on the most 'Southern California'-looking "Sherwood Forest" set I've ever seen, with 'Merry Men' straight out of 'B' westerns, I knew that back in 1947, Errol Flynn wasn't losing any sleep over this version of his greatest role! That being said, on it's own merits as a 'programmer', made as light entertainment for post-war audiences, it really isn't bad...'groan'-able, certainly, but diverting, for kids, and no worse than Cornell Wilde or John Derek's Robin Hood films.

Producer Sam Katzman was a master at creating these low-budget films, often for 'bargain basement' studios, like Monogram; working at Columbia, even on a tiny budget, was a definite improvement, and having the redoubtable Hall (who'd rocketed to fame in John Ford's "The Hurricane", and was Universal's biggest wartime action star, in a string of 'Arabian Nights'-inspired 'B' movies), was a plus, as well. Columbia filmmaking offered another benefit; respected character actors in supporting roles, such as Alan Mowbray as the 'Friar Tuck' character, and H.B. Warner as Robin's adopted father. The leading ladies (Patricia Morison and Adele Jurgens) could both actually act, as well (not always the case, at Monogram).

The story, of Robin aiding a returning Crusader in saving his 'Lady Fair' from an unwanted wedding (while wooing Lady Marion, who is introduced in a G-rated nude woodland swim...

3.0 out of 5 stars "That milady is a silly illusion." March 21, 2014
By Einsatz
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Supposedly based on an Alexandre Dumas' novel, this film is just another standardized swashbuckler with nominal swash and not much to buckle. Robin Hood, misplayed by Jon Hall, is pretty bland. He portrays the character light and loose, making all his dialog sound humorous when it's not. There are three damsels in varying degrees of distress. (One's betrothed to one guy, forced to marry another. One's captured and forced to marry another guy. They must have been desperate for marriageable women in those days.) There's the requisite number of duels, jailbreaks, the bad guys organize a hanging for entertainment sake.......... Robin sends a Friar to spy for him at the castle. "Hide the wine, it's a monk." I think they bought their costumes at Robin Hoods R Us. They look fairly typical to what other Robins wore.
I'm not sure but I think this was aimed at children. It is a bit on the silly side. But it's all good natured fun for everyone, except for the bad guys who were shot or stabbed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Prince of Thieves April 5, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Robin Hood comes to the aid of A man and his sister not realizing what he just got himself in for.The man is to marry the daughter of A Noble man,but robin suspects maybe the future father in law may not want the man for A son in law which leads to A very action fill movie.
