Editorial Reviews

John Derek (The Ten Commandments) plays the role of Robin Hood’s son in this action-packed adventure. With England suffering under the rule of the villainous King John (George Macready, Gilda), Robin and his father’s loyal band fight countless battles with the king’s tax collectors and henchmen, who have corrupted the kingdom, oppressed the common folk, and brought false charges of treason and murder against the disenfranchised. When the tyrant has been deposed, Robin finally returns to the lovely Lady Marianne (Diana Lynn, The Miracle of Morgan’s Creek) and just rule is restored. Briskly directed by Gordon Douglas (Harlow, Them!), this is grand fun for the entire family, and film buffs will especially appreciate the final screen appearance by Alan Hale, again playing Little John—as he did opposite both Douglas Fairbanks and Errol Flynn!

Despite being the last of the "Old Hollywood" Robin Hood epics, no one is likely to claim that "Rogues" is a classic. Still, it remains good, undemanding fun for swashbuckling aficionados. John Derek makes a good-humoured, agile hero, son of the original outlaw, while George MacCready (as Prince John), Alan Cavanaugh and Lowell Gilmore essay a splendid trio of villains. Alan Hale Sr repeats his Little John from the Errol Flynn version but Diana Lynne can't really do much with an underwritten Maid Marianne. Ringing the changes, the plot centres on Robin's part in forcing Prince John to sign the Magna Carta. The action scenes are a bit slapdash, but there are a fair few, including an opening joust and a final duel that mixes swordplay on horseback and on foot.

The DVD itself is a gem. I can't imagine this film has looked this good since it first hit movie screens back in 1950. The image is incredibly sharp, with deep blacks and vibrant colours. The audio is all that one could wish from a sixty-year-old source.

Congratulations to Columbia on a first-class restoration - a great buy for Robin Hood lovers (Hoodies?) everywhere.

First, let me say this is really about Robin's son. OK, this is a great film. Far, and i do mean FAR, better then that crappy new one with Russell Crowe. This has eveything, great acting, exciting action scenes, wonderful romance. It's one of the best Robin Hood films I have ever seen. And has Alan Hale as Little John. That right there puts it above most of the others. I would rank Eroll flynn number 1. This 2 and the Disney version 3.

1950's "Rogues of Sherwood Forest", another of Columbia's contributions to the Chivalry genre, is an okay entry, with a few definite 'pluses'; excellent Technicolor cinematography by Charles Lawton, crisp direction by Gordon Douglas, lush, elaborate (if somewhat generic) sets, and an above-average cast for a 'B' feature, including veteran screen 'villain' George Macready ("Gilda") as King John, beautiful (and very busy) screen ingenue Diana Lynn, as King John's ward, Lady Marianne (no one even mentions 'Maid Marion' in this film), and especially Alan Hale, in his final film, playing Little John for the THIRD time (first, in support of Douglas Fairbanks in 1922's classic, "Robin Hood", then Errol Flynn, in 1938's classic, "The Adventures of Robin Hood", and here, serving John Derek). Hale, at 57, may sound a bit tired, but he still has that twinkle in his eye, and appears to be enjoying himself, immensely!

As for John Derek...it's easy to see why he was cast as the son of Robin Hood; facially, he does resemble the youthful Errol Flynn, particularly when he smiles. However, Derek lacks Flynn's athletic grace (he is obviously doubled in every fight sequence), and he lacks Flynn's charismatic screen presence...and, honestly, he's a lousy actor, at least in costume epics (even ignoring his incongruous American accent).

Just to show that he's got more to him than a guy with a knack for marrying gorgeous actresses (Ursula Andress, Linda Evans, Bo Derek), John Derek even starred in a few films. So he's one reason to see ROGUES OF SHERWOOD FOREST, this umpteenth film iteration of the Robin Hood mythos. Another is that Alan Hale, in his final screen appearance, assumes the role of Little John for the third time. Alan Hale by this time was already pretty long in the tooth, but dang if he wasn't as lively as ever.

How petty and vindictive is King John? The year is 1215, and no sooner does the son of King John's old nemesis, the Earl of Huntington (who was more famously known as. Robin Hood), return from the Crusades than he is summoned by royal decree to compete in an exhibition of friendly combat. If by "friendly combat" it's intended that his opponent's lance is capped in brittle metal. Robin Hood's son, also named Robin, survives this treachery, leaving the King to fester even deeper in jealous rage.

Even more troubling to the king, the barons refuse to be properly cowed by his royal commands. King John longs to hire Flemish troops to enforce his rule, but the price is high. Ergo, he re-institutes his old policy of imposing crippling taxes on the people. With England teetering under a corrupt reign, young Robin takes up his legendary father's outlaw habits. He enlists his father's old band of merry men. Luckily for him, Little John, Friar Tuck, Alan-a-Dale, and Will Scarlett still make for spry bandits even if they're now "greyer in the thatch." Away they go, vanquishing evil tax collectors and other scoundrels deployed by the King. It's like old times for these aged reprobates.
