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'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).

Format: DVD
1950's Rogues of Sherwood Forest sees John Derek stepping into Errol Flynn's costume but never managing to fill it: a dull and wooden presence, he sets the tone for a lacklustre and perfunctorily executed hour-and-a-third that only has Alan Hale in his final film playing the role of Little John for the third time going for it. Unfortunately it only reminds you how much better Errol Flynn and even Douglas Fairbanks, for all his prancing and over-emoting, were in Lincoln Green. Not that Derek is actually playing Robin but his son, who finds himself up against King John, who's overtaxing the people once again to pay for an army of Flemish mercenaries to crush them even further before the barons can force him to sign the Magna Carta ("I'll build a gallows. It will be high and it will be strong," spits George Macready's treacherous monarch). While Diane Lynne's bland Maid Marianne sends him information from the castle via carrier pigeon, the newly outlawed Robin of Huntingdon and Little John decide to bring all the original Merry Men back together, which is an idea that has promise that the film never does anything with at all. With the exception of the final swordfight (initially on horseback), the action scenes are especially lazily thrown together with actors and stuntmen just going unenthusiastically through the motions because they know this is the kind of programmer it's not worth getting any bruises over. Even the Technicolor isn't anything to get excited about in a film that has contractual obligation written all over it and which even recycles some footage from the earlier and much more enjoyable The Bandit of Sherwood Forest. As Alan Hale says at the end, "Everything has been said, everything has been done."

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