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.

From 1950 we have the Rogues of Sherwood forest, we have swashbuckling, we have men in tights and we have the son of the original robin Hood carrying on the fight against the tyranny, yes, I said tyranny of King John. John Derek is Robin Hood's son and Alan Hale is his faithful sidekick. they must round up the old gang of Will Scarlett, Alan o' Dale and Friar Tuck and get some new blood too. this was fun and the story is about the same and even the over the top acting worked for this movie. Good clean family fun.

There is a sense of vague familiarity haunting every scene in this movie. Possibly because several scenes were lifted from previous movies to be recycled here (waste not want not). Otherwise, a perfunctory retelling of Hood junior (John Derek) dealing with more treachery from King John (George Macready). King John wants junior dead due to his old grudge with Hood senior. He tries to use a Flemish Knight to kill him during a "fixed" joust but the dastardly deed is foiled. King John goes on a tax spree. Hood junior tries to prevent this, kills several of the King's men gets arrested and is scheduled to hang. Naturally, he escapes and with Little John's help (Alan Hale, Sr.) goes on a road trip to gather the old gang together (the merry men are a bit long in the tooth but willing), a variation of gathering nuts in May.

Other than the welcomed presence of Alan Hale, Sr. there isn't much here to set this retelling apart from any other Robin Hood adventure flick. It's average in every way possible.

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).
